IAP Channels with "+" sign

When manually assigning channels (ARM disabled), some channels have a "+" sign next to them. What is the difference between those with and without the "+"?

Thanks.

Re: IAP Channels with "+" sign

The ones with + signs is for channel bonding (adding 2 channels together) for greater bandwidth.  The ones without + signs just using the single channel for communication.

A +or - means that it is a 40 mhz channel.

Re: IAP Channels with "+" sign

Thanks for the replies - to fully understand this, it has taken a little further reading. My understanding now is that if a channel with a "+" is specified, then it is bonded with the next non-overlapping channel above it, i.e. in the 2.4GHz range, if channel 6+ is configured to be used, then it will be bonded with channel 11.

Correct.  Lets hope you are not seeing a 6+, however....
