What Are the Supported Wi-Fi Channels for IEEE* 802.11n 40 MHz?

Supported combinations of 802.11n channels at 5 GHz with 40 MHz bandwidth are:
(36,1) (40,-1); (44,1) (48,-1); (52,1) (56,-1); (60,1) (64,-1); (100,1) (104,-1); (108,1) (112,-1); (116,1) (120,-1); (124,1) (128,-1); (132,1) (136,-1); (149,1) (153,-1); (157,1) (161,-1)

When selecting the two channels, select the control channel first. Select the secondary or extension channel in relation to the primary channel.

For example if the primary channel is 36 and the secondary channel is 40, the combination would be (36,1). If the primary channel is 44 and the secondary channel is 40 the notation would be (44,-1). The primary and secondary channels are always next to one another.

Note Channels can be slightly different depending on the regulatory requirements of the country.
