How To Manually Select The Wi-Fi Channel & Channel Width For A Vilo Network

You can manually select the Wi-Fi channel and channel width in the Vilo ISP Portal & the Vilo App. Please note: You can select the channel width for the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands on Vilo 6. On Vilo 5, you can only select the channel width for the 2.4 GHz band. A video walkthrough can be found here.

  2. From the Wi-Fi networks page, click the “View” button for the network you’d like to edit the channel width for.

  4. From here you will see different settings you can edit: Band Steering, Wi-Fi Name / Password, Signal Strength, Encryption, Hide This Network, 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz.
  5. You can use the respective drop-down menus to select the channels as well as the channel width (20 & 40 MHz for 2.4 and 20, 40, and 80 MHz for the 5GHz band.)
