I made a 4 page poster of all the Wi-Fi channels including 6Ghz thanks to Wireless LAN Pros for the great image. There are way too many 6Ghz channels to put on one page. Now you just need a wall wide enough to hang it.

Windows 11 Wi-Fi Review
I did some Wi-Fi testing on a laptop that I upgraded to windows 11. The computer is a Acer Aspire AS15-54 with Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201. I tested with a Ruckus R750 4×4 Wi-Fi 6 AP at short distance and saw 800-900Mbps throughput with iPerf.
Microsoft also made some changes to the setting interface you can now select a random hardware address for increased privacy like in IOS.
The taskbar widget hs now been combined so you have a extra step to select you Wi-Fi network.
In all Windows 11 Wi-Fi networking has not changed much from Windows 10 and is working well!
iPhone 13 Pro Wi-Fi 6 Speed Testing
I wanted to test maximum Wi-Fi speed of the iPhone 13 Pro so first I used speedtest.net I have a 1Gb Internet connection and I saw just under 600Mbps.
Next I used iPerf between my 10GbE connected workstation and my Ruckus R750 connected to the same ECS2512FP gigabit switch at 2.5GbE and Again saw just about 600Mbps throughput.
I tested with 2 different access points in 80Mhz mode and get the same results. This is quite a bit less then the 800Mbps I saw with the iPhone 12 Pro. Please comment below if you have seen similar results with the iPhone 13 Pro?
Above is a graph of a 2×2 Wi-Fi 6 laptop (green) and the iPhone 13 Pro (blue) throughput.
