If I set the parameter "disable_vht=1" in the configuration file of wpa_supplicant, my station can connect in
mode 802.11nHT40 with my AP (set up in 802.11ac VHT80).
Then I add "disable_ht40=1", but my Station still connects to my AP in mode 802.11n HT40 (I verify this
by checking bandwidth and rate report from command "iw").
I added "disabled_ht20" but this did not create any effect too. Any one gets the same issue like me?
Here is an example of my configuration file for wpa_supp:
