Dragon,

Could you please give more details: (are the following what you mean????)

1) Edit the default 11g channels:
defaultchannels=IEEE80211g:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,10,36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64

or

2) add sourcechannels line

sourcechannels=aircap:1,6,11,2,7,3,8,4,9,5,10,36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64,149,161
