How to Change the Channel on a Wireless Router
Wireless routers operate on a series of channels. Much like when you tune into a radio station, each wireless router you interact with is broadcasting on a unique frequency.
If two routers using the same channel are too close, they can interfere with each other which can result in a slower network connection. If you suspect this is the case for your wireless network, you can try changing the wireless channel. Check out our guide on how to check your Wi-Fi speed for a before and after comparison of each channel.
