Normally Wi-Fi or router has two different bands in frequency. Almost any of the people will use 2.4GHz. If you are using Wi-Fi network and there are no any other networks available near you, then it makes no sense whatever band you select. But if another network is available near you and it also accesses the same channel, then the signal will get shared, which is you people get slower network connectivity. In that if you don’t want to share the bandwidth, you can change the channel to other channels which are unused.
Reason why people opt for the change in bandwidth Channel in a router?

User’s router or other wireless network devices may lose its connectivity because of even some physical obstacles like floors and walls. The best place to place router is at the central part of the house.
- Collisions with other wireless devices – collisions or interference happen when there is another wireless device is available using the same bandwidth channel as yours in your network area. Some devices that use same frequency bands are cordless phones, Bluetooth, microwave ovens, etc.
- Power off – sudden power off will lead to irregular wireless connection or even may lead to no connection at all established from your router device. In case it happened, the better solution to make it normal is that to power cycle your router. To do this, you have to switch off the router and to unplug your router and keep it as such.
