Nokia Lumina 610 will not connect to WiFi Network

I had a problem trying to connect a Nokia Lumina 610 to a home WiFi network.  It would intermittently see the network.. but sometimes not.  I could enter the details in the advanced mode, but it would fail to find the network.

After fiddling for a while, I set the wireless router back to broadcast on channel 1 ( Extension channel 5) and the Lumina picked it up straight away and connected without any problem.  (Previously I had the router on channel 13 with Extension channel 9.  The router type is a Belkin F5D8236-4 v2 with firmware version 2.01.06.

Hope this helps some other people.
