What is channel bonding?
Posted by Billion UK FAE 07 on 18 February 2011 07:18 AM
A single channel is 20MHz in width. When two channels are bonded they are a total of 40MHz. It is possible to use either 20MHz or 40MHz channels with IEEE 802.11n. The Channel bonding trick can provide a 10 to 20 Mbps throughput increase, but usually works best under strong signal conditions. As signal levels drop, using channel bonding becomes much less effective in providing a throughput boost.
