there's lots of regulatory limits set to wifi, especially when you're running it outdoors. some have been required to have the function of turning off transmit when scanned by radar. can't be upsetting them low-flying F16's now!

After way too much reading i've discovered that in order to be 802.11n compliant you should have 20 mhz or auto, and not a force 40 mhz option. And Asus and some other routers have 40 mhz force which is non-complaint.

So either it's not picking up the other access points correctly or it's forcing 40 mhz against the standard.

Without an option to set the threshold for detecting any other networks I don't see how auto is much use.

DFS is to stop your radio causing interference to weather radar, ie that used to form the rain radar images.
