Changing channels can often reduce WiFi interference. This can be especially useful if you live in an apartment with a lot of WiFi networks nearby. To get an idea of which channels are already in use in your home or nearby, try the following mobile apps:

How to change your WiFi channel

  1. Open any web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge.
  2. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.254 and press enter.
  3. Enter your modem login information. By default, the User name and Password will both be admin. This information is also located on the bottom of your modem.
  4. Click WLAN from the left hand side.
  5. Update the WiFi channel in the Channel field by selecting a new channel from the dropdown menu. To adjust the 5GHz WiFi network channel, update the Channel field under WLAN 5GHz.
  6. Click Save Settings.

Your WiFi channel is now updated. We recommend testing for at least 2 hours before changing WiFi channels again.
