Just to add... the AP's redio

Just to add... the AP's redio sensitivity also comes into play... It depends also on what the client and AP negotiates their modulation at.

for example a 3700:

-91 dBm @ 6 Mbps

-91 dBm @ 9 Mbps

-91 dBm @ 12 Mbps

-90 dBm @ 18 Mbps

-87 dBm @ 24 Mbps

-85 dBm @ 36 Mbps

-80 dBm @ 48 Mbps

-79 dBm @ 54 Mbps
