Routers can not follow other devices channels.
If there is Auto channel it related to the Router's Wireless capacity to
switch channels auto and stop at the one with the strongest connection that
is established with a Wireless capable computer.
There are many Wireless' advice posts on the Internet that suggest to people
to switch from the crowded Channel 6 to less crowded channels and it might
be that your neighbor follows this advice too.
