Thanks! l think my knowledge of wifi is not that deep to understand this :D Do you have any good KB explaining this process? If l disable "b" data rates, will it stop AP to use protection mechanism?

You can get rid of 802.11b clients by disabling the rates of 1, 2, 5.5, and 11 Mbps from the list of Mandatory rates. The following two articles are a good read about this topic (at least in my opinion). The give a good overview about overhead and how to reduce it:
