Could you expand on this a bit?  I recall from a while back (the last time I
used wireless in anything but a home application) that as long as you spaced
out the AP's on channels 1, 6, and 11 you'd be OK with getting full
bandwidth to each one as there isn't too much frequency overlap between the

Any more to add?  More technical info is always good in my book ;)

This all depends on how your channels are spaced.  If your channels are 
properly spaced, the traffic on 1 AP will not affect the traffic on 
another AP.  For example, if you have 1 AP on channel 1, and the next 
one on channel 6, they can both operate at their full bandwidth. 
However, if you have an AP on channel 1, and then one right next to it 
on channel 2, there will be interference across the frequencies, and you 
will definitely notice a slow down on both devices.
