    After some further investigations, switching from 20/40Mhz to 20Mhz solves the problem with the ping/lag spikes, gives a better SNR and a more stable line (website reactions are faster). On the downside, you lost some bandwidth over air.

    Sure, but bandwidth in the 2.4 GHz band is limited anyway in dense populated areas, since in a shared medium such as wireless technology "available bandwidth" is determined by the AirTime available to your AP in a given channel and not only by technical capabilities of the AP itself. That's the reason why the 5 GHz band is much more suitable for directional links.

    Thanks for your response again! The AP is behind a wall, the client not (no view connection and a distance about 20 meter). Do you think a 5 GHz link is a better choice for that scenario?

    No, in this case a 2.4 GHz link is better. 5 GHz is more sensitive to obstacles such as walls.
