Im near sure wireless channel connection quality also depends on the hardware in the machine's. Different vendors depending on where geographacally they are manufactured will operate better on different channels. Also im sure your aware that obstacles in the area things like microwaves and so on can interfere with the signal strength.

observation I have made 6 years 10 months ago #33381

I have noticed in past implementation that my Windows "zero configuration client" wNIC did not see an AP on chnnel 12, the manufacturer of the wirless conroller informed that windows does not scan channels 12 / 13 when looking for an AP (in order for the SSID to be viewable via the OS).
Maybe your machines are using different clients for the wNIC which see some cannels and not others .. maybe theres a fault on one of the wNICs ...... driver?

Channels above 11 are only legal (and therefore implemented) in certain parts of the world. So to ensure compatibility between your AP and all the devices accessing it you're better to stick with 11 and below
