Basically don't bother with 40MHz bandwidth on 2.4GHz as some devices work and some don't ('n' gear in 2.4GHz does not have to support HT40), but mainly because there isn't really room in the band for it.
It's fine on 5.xGHz ('n' gear in this band has to support it)
If you insist, choose either channel 1 or 13 only.
If you scan with InSSIDer it's to check if the left or right half of the band is available for 40MHz.
(as BatBoy is basically right in it spanning nearly 7 channels )
if other stuff is only on channels 1 thru 6 then choose channel 13 (bonds 9+13)
if other stuff is only on on channels 8 thru 13 then choose channel 1 (bonds 1+5)
(anything seen on 7 will interfere a little either way)
Multiple 40MHz networks can coexist but only using 1/5/9/13 as above (to see transmissions and wait for the medium)
