SuperChannel increases the number of channels that you can use allowing more Bandwidth to be used (not more speed, be careful not to make this mistake!).
In many places there are many wireless devices operating and it is a bit difficult to configure a robust wireless link without frequency interference. If you have purchased a SuperChannel extension from DD-WRT, then enabling this feature will allow you to access additional frequencies supported by the radio card.
You must take care to operate within your local regulatory requirements. If necessary, you must request a license to operate on licensed frequencies. Be warned that the use of many of these aditional channels will break your regulatory domain requirements in your country and if you were discovered perhaps (surely) you will be penalized.
SuperChannel allows you to use extended channels. In 5 MHz steps you can select any channel from 2.3 - 2.7 GHz and 4.9 - 6.1 GHz. Please be aware that even though the SuperChannel extension shows that these frequencies are available, there are hardware limitations (frequency filters) that may or may not be installed on the radio card which eliminate the possibility of using certain frequencies.
SuperChannel is compatible with Turbo, allowing you to use Turbo mode on any of these extended channels.
SuperChannel bypasses the regulatory domain in all countries, but you still can operate within a regulatory domain by disabling this feature.
Thanks to BrainSlayer for his explanation and remarks about this extension.
