Hi,

The problem is likely because the 'ecm' flag isn't set when it creates
the channel list.

That's why I suggested setting the ecm flag, setting the regdomain or
country, then checking the channel list.

The iwi code just uses the default net80211 regulatory domain code to
populate the channel list. The ath(4) code sets things up based on its
own internal channel assembly code.
That's why I've not noticed this behaviour before.

The net80211 regulatory domain code doesn't check for channels >11 in
11b/g/bg mode if the ecm bit isn't set when the channel list is
assembled.
And that only gets done when you configure the regulatory domain -
when setting/clearing the ecm flag, it doesn't trigger reinitialising
the channel list.

Hence why I said "set ecm bit, reset channel list, let me know how it goes."

Thanks,


Adrian
