changing router channel

Message 1 of 4 (43,290 Views)

I would like to change the channel my router is on.  - Since I had FIOS installed I can no longer open my garage door (dont laugh).  During the day when my FIOS goes out (daily) I can open and shut the garage.  Hince..would like to change channel on router.  Using IP address I (ending in 1.1) I can get to signon screen.  I use

' admin'  and 'password' but this information is incorrect - what is the sign on to access the router for the first time?

for accessing the router try 'admin' and 'password1'  if you still can't get in, reset the router then try the and the first time you access the router config page it will ask you to set\reset the password
