I'm wondering if I limit my channel width on a really nice (Meraki WAPs capable of 802.11ac) WAPs, to 20 MHz to stop them from overlapping, or if the Auto Width channel setting is making that change. if the limit of 54 Mbps will be reached. Or, is there something about the newer 802.11n protocol that allows for faster bitrate, even with that 20 MHz wide channel, and we've disabled 2.4 GHz radios.
For reference to the theoretical limits I speak of, this is one resource, but I'm not sure about what happens if you've turned off the 2.4 ghz radio use.
My reading of it is that by limiting an 802.11ac capable device, to 5 Ghz and to 20 MHz width, you're effectively downgrading 802.11ac to 802.11n 1X1, and the limit is actually about 72.2 Mbps, but I'm not sure I'm deducing that correctly.
