For the moment, the following is what is recommended:

Use 300 for the beacon interval for the primary radio you want seen first (5ghz most likely). DTIM should be 1.

Use 400 for the other radio if you have a router with two radios. DTIM should also be 1.

Enable RTS/CTS and then set the separate box for threshold to 784.

mtu=1500 bytes divide by half to yield 750 plus 34 bytes for overhead = 784.

prime numbers for BI may prove problematic for some client devices and YMMV if you use a prime number. 300-600 is the "sweet spot" for beacon interval vs. client power consumption. 300 seems to be a BI time unit recommended by advanced network guru's.

Would these be the best settings to reduce radiation & congestion?
