Once you have selected a new channel for your network with inSSIDer, the next step is to move your network to the new channel. All routers and access points are slightly different, so while this guide will give you a general idea of the process, it’s not an exact step-by-step tutorial.
Note: Check the bottom of the page for specific ISP router help!
Change the Wireless Router Settings
1. Connect to your network via WiFi, or via ethernet.
Note: An ethernet cable works a bit better, because your router will disconnect your from the wireless network for a moment while it switches channels.
2. Access the router configuration page by typing the router's IP address in to the address bar, and pressing enter.
|192.168.0.1||D-Link, Netgear, and others||Try this first|
|192.168.1.1||Linksys, Belkin, TP-Link, and others|
|192.168.100.1||Virgin Media Superhub|
Note: Even though there are a few more possible addresses, it doesn’t take long to see the pattern. Try changing the second to last number if none of those work.
