FYI: Some WNDR3800 do not support channel 165

I have a few WNDR3800's which refuse to bring up the 5Ghz radio if I select channel 165, it will basically just stay in the "radio not associated" or "wireless not associated" state forever. However, if I select channel 157 or lower it comes up right away. This happens through LUCI and also via UCI.

Anyhow, just posting in case someone else runs into this.

This make sense if you have 40 or 80 MHz bandwidth set. It should work if set to 20 Mhz.
