Would you like to change the radio channel on your FritzBox? This is quite simple. You can read exactly how in our article..

Your FritzBox allows you to choose from more than 15 different channels for your WLAN connection. The channels for 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz WLAN frequencies can be easily adjusted in the settings. In this article we explain why this can be helpful and how you can do it.

Why should I change the channel on my FritzBox?

Changing your router's WiFi channel can have a number of benefits. Mainly, choosing a different channel on your wireless router can create a more stable connection. In particular, if your WiFi is on the same channel as your neighbour's (or another WiFi device nearby), there may be some overlap. In the best case scenario, the overlaps have no effect on the WLAN networks. However, a channel that is used twice often leads to connection problems. Your WiFi connection may be slower or some devices may not be able to connect at all. Then it is worthwhile to adjust the channel settings on the router.

There is only one disadvantage, however: Your WLAN environment could be temporarily interrupted. As a rule, all WLAN devices automatically switch to the new channel. However, you may have to set up the WiFi connection again. However, this is only a small price to pay for an otherwise stable connection to your WLAN networks.

Change the radio channel of the FritzBox

1st step:

Call up the FritzBox user interface by entering fritz.box in the browser. Then log in there.

2nd step:

Click on " WLAN " on the left and select " Radio Channel ". Now you have to click on " Adjust radio channel settings " on the right-hand side . Here you can choose from a large number of channels for the frequencies 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz under " Radio channel ". Finally, click " Apply " in the lower right corner to save the changes.

Attention: If you are broadcasting on a certain WLAN channel, the signal can also be transmitted to the directly adjacent channel. Since this cannot be avoided, only channels 1, 5, 9 and 11 are used as a rule. In this way it can be ruled out that signals overlap..
