With Shaw Home, you can quickly change advanced WiFi settings for your 2.4 and 5 GHz network bands. Adjusting these settings can be helpful when troubleshooting issues with WiFi interference or device compatibility.

Note: These settings cannot be changed if Shaw Pods are installed, as the adaptive mesh network manages all advanced WiFi settings.
