XB7 Channel Width?

Is there a recommendation as to what to set the Channel Width to on the XB7  for 2.4ghz and 5ghz Wi-Fi? I had to set channels to make certain devices work and I was promoted in XiFi to also select a channel width. 

 

Right now I have 5GHz set to 80MHz and 2.4GHz set to 20MHz in XiFi.

Re: XB7 Channel Width?

I have found it depends on your environment,  if you have a lot of neighbors close by, a smaller bandwidth might be desirable, so it don't overlap with their WiFi, tho it will probably produce slower download speeds, I just experimented with different settings to find the optimum for my environment,
