Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen...I'll be here all week, make sure to tip your waitresses.
An important concept to note regarding channel assignments is that the channel actually represents the center frequency that the transceiver within the radio and access point uses (e.g., 2.412 GHz for channel 1 and 2.417 GHz for channel 2). There is only 5 MHz separation between the center frequencies, and an 802.11b signal occupies approximately 30 MHz of the frequency spectrum. The signal falls within about 15 MHz of each side of the center frequency. As a result, an 802.11b signal overlaps with several adjacent channel frequencies. This leaves you with only three channels (channels 1, 6, and 11 for the U.S.) that you can use without causing interference between access points.
The frequency spectrum under which this operates is not licensed to anyone. There is no limits to how it is used except that the output power can only be 1W. Equipment shall not require a license for legal operation in the United States of America, under the jurisdiction of the FCC. Wireless modems and bridges approved for operation in the ISM bands with a power output of 1 watt or less, when used with an appropriate antenna do not require an FCC license for legal operation in the United States.
