If this is the case, you will need to change the WiFi Channel of the device you are connecting to. Please consult the manual of the device you are connecting to, in order to change the channel.

  • Enter your WiFi password in the box WiFi Password text field. Please double check you have the correct password, by click on the * button to view the password.
