881w - 802.11n, what happened to 40 MHz channel width?

For those of us who like to maximize 802.11n bandwidth with channel bonding, configuring the Dot11Radio interface in the integrated AP with "channel width 40-above" can essentially double bandwidth in areas with available WiFi channels. See page 9-13 in Cisco 860 Series, Cisco 880 Series, and Cisco 890 Series Integrated Services Routers Software Configuration Guide, for documentation.

However, when I attempted to do just what the Guide says on a recently purchased 881w, I found that the option is not allowed. Why?

860W & 880W built-in AP is only 802.11b/g.

You won't be able to do channel-bonding with 2.4 Ghz.

Actually it's speced as 802.11n and I'm getting single channel n speeds. Also, for years I've been able to get dual channel bonding with 861w, but this unit with an integrated antennae has the command removed.

I am suspecting you were able to get channel bonding (with 2.4 Ghz) because you were using old IOS.

Not the router.  The IOS of the AP.

Yes.  I think those will do.

So, the old version had bonding capability but the new version doesn't? The new version is 12.4(25d)JAX.
