Wireless - filling up all of 2.4GHz
« on: July 17, 2018, 05:38:19 AM »

Does anyone know if it is a bad bad thing to fill up all of 2.4GHz channel space? With the use of channels 1 + 6 + 11 (or 13 if possible). I am wondering if Bluetooth devices might then either struggle? Or else create a nuisance for wireless LAN users, with resulting reduced WLAN performance?

The thinking goes like this: If I leave one channel clear (would that need to be a while 20MHz or 5MHz single channel number), do Bluetooth devices then choose that channel and so they then avoid either interfering with WLAN traffic or taking up time slots on WLANs in a controlled way, but still slowing WLANs down ?

It's not ideal but there are plenty of places where it's just reality.

WiFi networks consider Bluetooth to be background noise the power levels are so low and the spectrum in use so narrow. They aren't a real impediment.

Would you say that I do not need to leave a free channel for Bluetooth - to attract it - then? Say for a Bluetooth headphone set.

I don't know of anyone who does that.
