With the introduction of Wi-Fi 6E and 6 GHz WiFi came several new networking practices that are key to the optimal functionality of 6 GHz WiFi. One of these is the use of Preferred Scanning Channels. 

 

For in-band discovery, or communication between clients and APs both on 6 GHz, every fourth 20-MHz wide channel is dedicated to sending/receiving/scanning for probe requests. The full list of PSCs is: 5, 21, 37, 53, 69, 85, 101, 117, 133, 149, 165, 181, 197, 213, and 229.

Wi-Fi Alliance vs. IEEE

Wi-Fi is a trademarked term owned by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology standard that allows devices to communicate over a variety of distances using radio waves.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) sets technical standards for all types of wireless technology; however, 802.11 focuses on wireless networking technology standards. The current standard is 802.11ax-2021, which is based on the use of the 6 GHz frequency band for commercial wireless networking. There actually is no 802.11x! 

Devices that are certified as Wi-Fi 6E are adherent to the 802.11ax-2021 standard which mainly covers the use of the 6 GHz frequency band for commercial wireless networking. Each standard that has been released over the past few decades mark large achievements in Wi-Fi technology and faster speeds.
