To change the channels on the Apple airport router with the help of a baby monitor, you need to follow a few simple steps, which are given below-

  • You have first to set up your Apple airport router and choose your network. Then go to the advanced settings and select "logs and statistics " options. You can further check all the connected devices to your wireless network and find out the reason behind the cause of interference.

2) Airport Utility App

3) Wireless settings
