I would suggest the following:
- Change the Radio Mode to: 802.11n only (5 GHz) - 802.11b/g/n. Even better, if you don't have any 802.11b or g clients, change the 2.4 GHz radio to: 802.11n only (2.4 GHz)
- Make sure that the "Use wide channels" option is enabled for the 5 GHz radio.
- You selected channel 1 for the 2.4 GHz band. If you haven't already, I would recommend that you use a utility like iStumbler or inSSIDer to determine other Wi-Fi operating nearby. Note those with the strongest signal value, and then, change your 2.4 GHz channel to one at least 3-5 channels away. For example, if you find most operating on channel 1 or 6, change yours to 11.
Also base station placement is important. Please check out the following AirPort User Tip for details.

Thanks for responding. I don't see these options you posted.
Under radio mode, all I see are the following choices:
- 802.11a/n - 802.11b/g/n (Automatic)
- 802.11a/n - 802.11b/g
- 802.11a - 802.11b/g
There is no otpion to select "Use wide channels".

When you need more options, hold down the option key on your Mac while you click on the Radio Mode settings box
The setting for wide channels is automatically enabled in AirPort Utility 6.x, so there is no setting for this if you are using Lion or Mountain Lion.
