#17606 closed enhancement (fixed)

WLAN Channel 12 and 13

Reported by: hollari@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Keywords: Cc:


In Barrier Breaker 14.07 RC3 I can select as County "AT"
for Austria.
But still WLAN Channel 12 and 13 are not avaliable until
I use the Reghack (

There are a lot of tickets open for this "problem",
so I cant understand, why this is still not fixed,
and I need to use this - not - so - nice - hack.
(Who knows for which newer Versions of OpenWRT this hack

will still work ?)

(Especially Channel 13 is very important for me because I

have a lot of Accesspoints, and I want to set them
to CH 1 - 5 - 9 - 13)

AFAIK it is due to a legal minefield and concerns by the proprietary WiFi driver/hardware manufacturers that they are not seen as facilitating detonations on this field. 1-11 are pretty much legal everywhere and so there is less risk, and it may be a PITA but copy and pasting commands is not that much trouble for those of us who can use openwrt. Just save the modded files once somewhere and incorporate in a custom build is what I do.

Aber sonst gehts noch? Wie beschränkt kann man sein, nicht zu erkennnen, dass es sich um kein Problem handelt, es schon zich unnütze, nervige, Tickets zu dem Thema gibt, aber trotzdem die Dreistheit zu besitzen, ein weiteres aufzumachen. Unfassbar. Kompilier dein eigenes build, dann hast du die Channel zur Auswahl.

I need to add a comment here.
@Anonymous from comment2
As i allways do, i build my Images on my own to store mor packages inside the squashfs.
I do so since Backfire. As far as i can say it is not possible to build an Barrier_Breaker Image in which its possible to use channel 13 here in germany.
iw list allway look like this:

                        * 2412 MHz [1] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2417 MHz [2] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2422 MHz [3] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2427 MHz [4] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2432 MHz [5] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2437 MHz [6] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2442 MHz [7] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2447 MHz [8] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2452 MHz [9] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2457 MHz [10] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2462 MHz [11] (20.0 dBm)
                        * 2467 MHz [12] (disabled)
                        * 2472 MHz [13] (disabled)
                        * 2484 MHz [14] (disabled)

I build kmod-ath with "Force Atheros drivers to respect the user's regdomain settings"
but the problem stays the same. So maybe @Anonymous2 has a sugestion?

Install a standard RC2/3.
Run Jow's patch.
Save the processed files: /lib/modules/3.xxxx/ "ath.ko" and "cfg80211.ko"
Use imagebuilder to generate a new image with the above in /files folder.
