revised Is it better to use a crowded 2.4GHz Wi-Fi channel 1, 6, 11 or “unused” 3, 4, 8, or 9?
Adding link to main answer. The link provides credibility to the claim.

@Joel I wouldn't say it's bad advice, but it's certainly only part of the picture. Your point is well taken. inSSIDer did help me layout my 5GHz network - a space that my neighbors aren't in just yet (at least not with 802.11).

Thanks, any link to the results of the test from Cisco? That would make this the definitive answer.

I see, yes I just tried the tool. I thought it could/would make recommendations of what channels to use. It just shows a graph as you suggested. Not unlike WifiAnalyzer for my Android phone (though my android doesn't do 5GHz). I've seen similar tools that will also make recommendations. I can't think of what they were at the moment.
