Re: 5 Ghz Doesn't Seem to Need More Channels :)?

Lol I asked the same thing in a thread a month or so ago on this website. Most of them are 2wire U-verse gateways :P! Channel 1 is actually the clearest out of them all.

For your enjoyment with not holding my adapter up in the air:

The AT&T U-Verse gateways don't look around to see how congested the bands are and instead default. You have to manually change the channel. Luckily for me, none of my neighbours seem to have this figured this out, leaving me the opportunity to set my APs on different channels with less interference.

Both of my gateways that I received from AT&T had "Auto" for channel as the default.(3800/3801)

I live in an apartment by my college, all of my neighbors except for 1 are on channel 11. I have no complaints though, as it leaves me 1 free non-overlapping channel, and 1 lightly used channel.
