Changing the Wifi Network for Rogers Ignite TV (Arris Xi6-T Boxes)

So I recently got Rogers Ignite TV. There are some really nice features, but there are some very frustrating things about it as well.

What I found so jarring is that it’s really easy to find out what Wifi network your Ignite TV box is connected to, but it’s really hard to change it.

In my house, like a lot of houses, I have a 5 GHz network as well as a 2.4 GHz network, and because of the sound drop outs and freezing video I was experiencing on the 5 GHz network, I wanted to switch networks.

So how do you do it?

On your Ignite TV remote, hit

  • Hold Exit for three seconds
  • Press down down and then press 9-4-3-4


I’ve tested this on my Arris Xi6-T box, but I assume it works for the other Xi6-A models as well.

Big thanks to the original reddit poster, 2ByteTheDecker, who outlined the solution here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Rogers/comments/axcemt/ignite_tv_wifi_setup_help/

Hope this helps out some peeps.

Thank you so much. It worked, now I can actually watch for more than 30 seconds without a black screen.
