 I'm not sure if this has to do with this or not, thanks for the
 information, but I thought that part of the reason could also be that
 many of the newer wireless routers/cards often use a technology to
 speed bandwidth and transmission by using multiple channels at a time.

Some of the newer routers do use MIMO (Multiple-In/Multiple Out) or similar technologies, but the problem remains that there are only three non-overlapping channels, and you can easily see most everything on channel six if you are on channel seven, and vice-versa.
