2. Click on "Home Network" on the left-hand side.

3. Click on "Interfaces" below "Home Network" on the left-hand side.

4. Click on “WLAN: NCF...”.

Notes:

  • Wireless channels shouldn't have to be changed often (more than once every 6-12 months). If you find yourself making these changes too frequently, you may have to invest in a mid to high end router with additional channels on the 5Ghz frequency. Contact support@ncf.ca for recommendations if needed.
