Which MHz is better for WiFi?

If Wi-Fi clients are close to your router, your Wi-Fi devices support 80 MHz, interference isn’t a big issue, and you want to maximize throughput, consider 80 MHz. If all your devices support it, and overlapping channels is not an issue, 80 MHz channels leave you with four or five non-overlapping channels.

What is 160MHz band?

The higher the channel bandwidth, the faster the connection. The use of 160 MHz channel bandwidth is one of the key features of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard. This technology answers the bandwidth needs of current and future high-speed mobile devices.

What channel is 160MHz WiFi?

If you need to use a 160 MHz width, manually set the channel number to 36, as this width implies that the client covers the whole 36-64 channel block. There is also a nuance in using channel 144 in the 5 GHz band: not all devices support it, so it is excluded from the router’s auto channel selection.

What is best channel for 40MHz?

On a non-MIMO setup (i.e. 802.11 a, b, or g) you should always try to use channel 1, 6, or 11. If you use 802.11n with 20MHz channels, stick to channels 1, 6, and 11 — if you want to use 40MHz channels, be aware that the airwaves might be congested, unless you live in a detached house in the middle of nowhere.
