Thread: What does Channel 11 + 7 mean

    Default What does Channel 11 + 7 mean

    The inSSIDer shows 11 + 7 under Channel for one of the WiFi device at home. What does that mean? I believe that device is a 11n device, but is used to send 11g data. Thanks.

    That shows channel bonding of two 20 MHz data streams bonded to create a 40 MHz data stream.
    It is part of the 802.11n spec - not 802.11g. The capability is enabled in the wifi router and/or access point.

    I can see with inSSIDer that my AP has channel bonding ( 11+7), but my PC scanning (netsh) shows only channel 11 for the AP. What does that mean? Also, does channel bonding has to be agreed by the 2 party (AP and the client communicating with it)? How to I disable it? Thanks.

    Default

    For the client the channel width - 20 MHz or 40 MHz - is set in the adapter properties.
    Channel bonding in the AP is set by using the administration app that is part of the AP.
    It is usually accessed via a browser.

    Are you using netsh in Windows XP? XP predated 40 Mhz channels by quite a few years, so I don't think netsh will acknowledge them.
