✔ Best Answer
To change any settings in your router's configuration utility, particularly wireless settings, you should always use a computer that is connected to the router by ethernet cable.

If you were to use a wireless connection to change any router wireless settings, you may lose the wireless connection to the router, in which case you would then have to go on a computer with an ethernet connection to re-establish the wireless connection.

If you are going to change the settings that will not affect your wireless network connection, then you can connect your laptop to network wirelessly and configure the settings on wireless router management page.

Hope this helps.
