Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,111

1. A method, comprising:detecting, in a network apparatus, presence of a first network and a second network on overlapping frequency bands;
determining a first operating bandwidth of the first network, where the first operating bandwidth comprises a first upper frequency and a different first lower frequency;
determining a second operating bandwidth of the second network, where the second operating bandwidth comprises a second upper frequency and a different second lower frequency;
detecting that the first operating bandwidth and the second operating bandwidth are at least partially different, where the detecting comprises determining that at least one of the first upper frequency is different from the second upper frequency or the first lower frequency is different from the second lower frequency;
in response to detecting that the first operating bandwidth and the second operating bandwidth are at least partially different, causing at least a first access point of the first network to initiate a procedure to change at least one operating bandwidth of a set comprising the first operating bandwidth and the second operating bandwidth so that the operating bandwidths of the first network and the second network are the same after the change.
