Co-location is a common technique used to provide more bandwidth and throughput in a given area. Wireless LANs can have three non-overlapping RF channels (1,6,and 11). These three channels can be used to co-locate multiple access points in a given physical area using 802.11 equipment.
When co-locating access points, it is recommended that the same spread spectrum technology is used for all access points, as well as the same vendor for the hardware.
The impact on the throughput may not be detrimental enough to warrant any concern, so a solution may not be sought.
If a workaround is required, there are several options.
The easiest option is to reduce the number of co-located access points to two, instead of three, using the channels 1 and 11. This will ensure there is no overlap at all between the two access points.
