Your wireless network has been functioning well, but suddenly you are inundated with calls from employees who can't access the network. You believe that a disgruntled employee who was just fired is causing network interference in order to perpetrate a DoS attack. What is a temporary solution in this situation?

A Set your router to use a different channel.

It doesn't take much to launch a DoS (denial-of-service) attack on a wireless network. Your network could go down if someone nearby uses a Wi-Fi analyzer to find out what channel you're using and bombards it with interference. Changing the channel would offer a short-term solution. Find a less crowded channel using a Wi-Fi analyzer, then switch to it. Resetting your router to factory defaults wouldn't fix the problem and would just increase your workload.
