Hi All:
I am new to this forum, I have a question. I need to change the "country code" for my device (LinkSys WRT-3200ACM), and enable 802.11d. I am able to change the country code under "Wireless"\"Basic Settings"\"Advance Settings"\"Regulatory Domain".
Now, I need the router to broadcast the "country code". Where can find the setting for "Regulatory Mode" in the dd-wrt GUI?

thanks,
Kiet

Wireless -> Basic Settings -> in the first wireless interface check the advanced checkbox and then see the expanded list.

If I am not mistaken, this model router's power tables can be hardware baked or locked from the factory (e.g. US model).

Hi Blkt:
Under Wireless\"Basic Settings"\"Advanced Settings" checkbox checked\
Other than "Regulatory Domain", I do not see the "Regulatory Mode" in here.
With regards to your comments about there maybe a possibility that this feature is locked by the manufacture. This is why I am using dd-wrt fw instead of the LinkSys stock fw. The dd-wrt fw allows to change "Regulatory Domain", but not "Regulatory Mode", so it won't be very useful.

Correct, the only thing you can do is set the regulatory domain to match the country or region the router was originally manufactured for its intended use.

No open source firmware will circumvent hardware locked or baked in power tables, especially if the wifi driver and/or wifi binary supplied from Marvell enforces the lock. Sorry Sad
