Cannot change Wifi channels; system is managed automatically

:..WiFi channel cannot be modified if you see a notification in the Admin Portal stating that WiFi channel settings (i.e., WiFi Mode, Security Mode, Channel Selection, Channel Mode and Channel bandwidth) are being managed automatically..."

 

I would like to know where I can access my home wifi to change the channels and select a channel that doesnt have so many other neighbors on it.

You’ll need your own router for that

I have to new modem/router.  If that is Xb7 then that would explain it.
