The commercial success of the IEEE 802.11b wireless networking standard is leading to ever more crowded usage of the 2.4 GHz ISM band. Current literature suggests that only three independant channels (1, 6, and 11) may be used when using 5.5 or 11 Mbps DSSS operation. This paper intends to show that this may be overly restrictive, and that up to four channels may be used in instances where maximum density or highest aggregate nework bandwith are required.
