This post has been super helpful, as I'm in an apartment complex with lots of signals flying around.
My only question: I have client bridges on my network to the gateway. I have the beacon interval set there, and currently on my client bridges as the same. Should client bridges have the same interval? Or is it better off having a different interval than the gateway?
DTIM at 2 has helped a lot as well. Just wondering about the client bridge interval issue.

Setting 2.4GHz band to 293 and 5GHz band to 241 seems to be working good on my E4200 v1. I left the GTK renewal at the default of 3600 and so far, NO ISSUES, save and except for the first couple of hours of uptime after I had to de-brick after a bad flash on 40167. Currently still using 40065 K3.x mega.
DEV's,make this post Sticky please. It's very informative and beneficial to everyone here.I also had no idea about the proper interval numbers.

Just wondering about the client bridge interval issue.
For an apartment with wifi congestion, CTS to auto and lowering the RTS value could help. Lower RTS costs some throughput but reduces lag, and can get more range for 5ghz. Theoretically, the setting could be done at clients or access points; but, it is usually done at the access point.
Client-mode specific WL commands exist but they aren't represented in the user interface; and, clients don't beacon. So, generally, those settings are done at the access point.
