Can someone clarify the following Wireless Setting on an adopter? I'm having a hard time understanding it.

This setting communicates to surrounding networks that this wireless adopter is not tolerant of 40MHz channels in the 2.4GHz band.

Enable or Disable

Your reply and help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically this setting being Enabled, when your adapter goes out and looks for wireless networks it tells the access points that it cannot communicate on wideband (40 MHz), this can also be 802.11n. If you disable it, then it wont notify the access point of anything and try and connect with its defaults outlined in the 802.11 specification.

Is this an Intel adapter?
