block wifi channel from neighbors

Is there any way for me to choose my channels for my  2.4, and two 5.2  wifi connections AND then block my neighborhood from accessing the same channels that I'm using??   I have 1Gig wired internet to my home. It seems that almost everyday I have to use the Netgear Genie to change my channels because others have joined my channels which then causes me noticeable hangups.  Thank-you for any help - in advance.

Thank-you for answering. I was hoping that wouldn't be my answer. 🙂

Re: block wifi channel from neighbors - final solution

My final solution was to upgrade my modem to the NETGEAR Nighthawk DOCSIS 3.1 32x8 Multi-Gigabit Cable Modem (CM2000)   and my router to the NETGEAR Nighthawk AX11000 WiFi 6 Router (RAX200) and I can report that NOW my Internet is 'flying' with no interference from the neighbors! More channels to use that the neighbors don't have so I am very happy!
