If you have a device currently connected to the Wi-Fi router, you can use this step by step guide to change the wireless channel.


Step 1


You will need your router's IP address. This may be located under the router along with the username and password. If you are unable to locate it, follow these steps:

  1. Open your command prompt (You can do this by typing cmd into windows search and clicking on the command prompt application) 
  2. Once open, type ipconfig and press enter
  3. Look through the results and find your default gateway. This is your router's IP address.

Step 2


Once you have located your router's IP address, open your web browser and put the IP address in the web address bar. This will bring you to a login screen where you will need to:

  1. Enter your username and password.  *You can find this underneath your router. If not, a quick google search "What is my router's username and password" along with the brand/model name should give you the info required.
  2.  Once you are logged into the router, click on the wireless section, and then go through the settings until you see wireless channel. This will be normally set on auto.
  3. From the drop-down menu, you can remove auto or the channel number that it was assigned to, and move it to another channel.
