Change 5ghz channel on Fios Quantum router - how to?

Message 1 of 2

I want my Amazon Fire Stick to use the 5ghz band but according to a Google search this won't show up in the Fire Stick's network search unless you change the router's channel to 36. When I use the gateway url there's no option to modify anything, nor are there advanced settings to tinker with. I'm curious if there's a way to do this without calling support?

Look in the user manual. You should be able to change the channel from auto to what ever one that is available.
