which are?

likely that too many people that think they are smarter than all others?

read it again,..

no this is no lab setup it just a chart showing the idea behind
recommending this channels.

which btw are the optimum usage of the band!

and any user that uses another channel reduces the overall throughput in
the band!

and as your scans showed that most networks in your region are actually on
1,6,11, the only ermaining thing to do, is choose the least used out of the

and even if u measure e.g. real world data throughput on each channel, and
find e.g. 8 to be the best, you (in 99 of 100 cases) still should not use
any channel except 1, 6, 11 (-;

and especially not as a default for others!

and a simple ssid scan is real world measurement, that helps you
understanding what??

btw to remind you:
this discussion was afair about what would be a wise default,..

which again is 1, 6, or 11

and btw why did you ask this question, if they only answer you want to hear
