    Same here, 149_153 IIRC.

    Used 36 without problems either, honestly, channels shouldn't matter as long as they're not overcrowded.

    161+157 here as "myth" say that it has the most "power" or "throughput".

    Anyways, it dun matter much as 5ghz range is soooo short and consumer 5ghz is still pretty rare. I live in NYC and alot of big company/organization start adapting though.

    My cousin use 149 , and I can barely get his signal with inSSIDER(e3000 and he hide it under a shelf I think) just two floor away.
