Changing the Wi-Fi channel on your router

Did you know that changing the Wi-Fi channel on your router can boost your signal and performance? This can be very helpfull for people who have a slow internet connection or for devices that aren’t so close to the router. Certain Wi-Fi channels work better in certain areas based off the level of interference. The most efficient Wi-Fi channels are 1, 6, and 11.

You can check the channel you’re on by logging into your router. Most routers use the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access the router. Simply type that into your browser url. It will ask for your username and password which you can almost always find on the side of the router. You can then configure the router and change the Wi-Fi channel according to your needs. This is simple to do however be carefull when adjusting router settings. Make sure you only ajust the channel settings and nothing else. Feel free to ask a tech savy friend if they’d be willing to help just to be safe. Go back and fourth between channels 1, 6, and 11 and see which one works the best for you.
