To change the channel, use the drop down and choose the appropriate channel desired.
It requires some trial and error to find a clear channel depending on the area/surroundings.
Typically try to choose a channel frequency opposite from its troubled channel frequency.
For example; if currently set to channel 11, try changing it to channel 1.
Step 3: Save Settings

Most devices will re-connect on a new channel automatically.
If it does not re-join the network, select the WiFi connection on the device again to resume.
Note: If using Ethernet, disconnect it and allow the device to re-connect wirelessly.
If the wireless issues persist, repeat the steps above to attempt to find a clear channel.
