You're setting up an 802.11n Wi-Fi network with five wireless access points. The access points are configured in such a way that their ranges overlap. What principle should you follow when configuring them to avoid communication problems?

A Configure all access points to use nonoverlapping channels.

It is best practice to overlap the ranges of wireless access points when configuring them so that there is no loss of communication when roaming within the network's range. To avoid difficulties, however, it is advisable to configure the access points with nonoverlapping channels; this way, the overlapping ranges assure continuous signal coverage while the nonoverlapping channels prevent interference from one WAP to another in the overlapping areas.
