Wifi - Auto Mode

I have a business PC for work. THe old black gateway worked fine - albeit slower (400 Mbps) on a 1Gbps service.

We swapped to the newer white/gray gateway and having nothing but issues with wireless. We found we are unable to setup any of the more advanced features and must call support to make the changes. Is there an expert mode we can enable to change either the channel, number of channels, and modes of operation within the 2.4G and 5G bands?

Frustrating to say the least with my business PC not being able to have a connection to webex more than 5-10 seconds before it drops. Here is a ping output:

Not acceptable!
