Difficulty finding Bluetooth channel

Hello
Just upgraded to LM20.
The only issue I've encountered is that my Wi-Fi drops when watching a video using a Bluetooth speaker.
The Wi-Fi router can only deliver 2.4Ghz, so I can't put my Wi-Fi connection on 5Ghz whilst Bluetooth operates on 2.4Ghz
I presumed that I could try putting the Wi-Fi on a channel far from the channel being used for Bluetooth.
I can discover which channel my wifi is operating on using

It's a lot technical but basically it says that bluetooth uses channel hopping technology which means it uses all the channels between the frequencies mentioned in that article. It continuosly changes frequency. So even if you change your wi fi channel it isn't going to make a lot of difference to any interference caused by bluetooth, at least I wouldn't think it would. To be honest channel hopping is used, in bluetooth context to reduce interference. I have never experienced any interference from bluetooth on any of my computers or devices. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen but I would be looking for other cause as well.
