You must be my neighbor. I am one of those people who lock my 2.4GHz at 40MHz and never use it to create more noise for my neighbors.

Haha, well you don't live in Christchurch so I think not :P

Channels 2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10 should all be banned. It ruins it for everyone else

Explain? How does only having 1,6,11 help? wouldn't that create more problems if everyone is on only 3 channels?

because as you can see by that picture in the first post, they all overlap accept for channels 1, 6 and 11.

Also pretty sure my walls have lead in them as one or two walls blocks the signal from downstairs. If I ran this outside it would likely be even worse.

given all the devices in the first picture are at -80dB or more im not sure what your issue is? its not likely to affect your speed much if at all, if there power was higher then you might have issues.

−10 dBm 100 µW Maximum received signal power of wireless network (802.11 variants)
−100 dBm 0.1 pW Minimum received signal power of wireless network (802.11 variants)

there is a factor of about 10000 between what your device would generally receive (-40dB) and what you are seeing in your image

Nope. Co-channel interference is basically just as a bad or even worse depending on a few variables than 2 AP's sitting by side on the same channel.

I don't think that app shows which ones are 40mhz

Is that right? I read on metageek that with co-channel the devices all take turns nicelytalking, but with adjacent channel overlap they try to all talk over top of each other

Basically 1,6 and 11 are neighbours and work fine. Anyone using same channels will behave.

People on the other channels overlap and will disrupt the Comms.

40 is bad because of that.

That's why one should look at channels before going crazy.

Does it explain @joker97?

What's a good app for wifi scanning? This one is called Wifi Analyzer made by Kelvin Yaun. (My phone is rooted if that would let me access better apps).

These days my expectations of 2.4ghz wifi performance are minimal, so anything usable means it's already exceeded my expectations if its a dense environment. Fortunately I live in an area which doesn't have too much noise on 2.4ghz, but i focus on 5ghz performance using multiple APs - as should everyone else (but unfortunately most don't).
