Hi Adrian,

Just to make sure:
| ifconfig wlan0 regdomain DE

can't work. So I used:

| ifconfig wlan0 down
| ifconfig wlan0 ecm
| ifconfig wlan0 regdomain ETSI
| ifconfig wlan0 up
| ifconfig wlan0 list channel

But this also shows me not the channels 12/13.


BTW ath vs. iwi:
As you read in my first mail, I have the same issue if I use ndis for my 
device. If you can build a ndis driver for your interface (NDISulator), you 
should have the same issue.

Regards,
Carsten
