Now that you have found some changes that need to be made to your network using inSSIDer, the next step is to make these changes via your router configuration, whether it’s simply changing the channel or security type. 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.
Change the Wireless Router Settings for optimum settings
1. Connect to your network via WiFi, or via ethernet.
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|
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.

Keep in mind that some routers now use mobile apps to access the router configuration. If you have one of these routers (Google WiFi, Eero, Apple Airport, Arris SURFboard mAX, etc) try finding their app in the App Store or Google Play from your mobile device.
