what channel plan?
I bought a new wifi dongle and in it's advanced seetings I have a channel plan selector.
What I can choose:
My question is which channel plan does the UK use, Or which one will be able to see all channels 1-14 (thats if there is 14).
Basicly when running it in netstumbler it doesn't seem to get the access points I know are there on chan11. My other dongle gets it fine.
Channel 14 is excluded from UK and European equipment - Ch 13 is the highest channel for the UK. That is not to say you do not have equipment that is capable of covering all 14 channels. I have also purchased equipment in the Uk that covers all 14 channels!
Channel 14 is used in Japan and other parts of Asia - but certainly not in the EU
So (legality aside) if both pieces of equipment cover all 14 channels, nothing to stop you using anyone of them. Select any EEC country you want - it shouldnt make any differance.
FCC = USA
ETSI = European
Off hand I dont know which countries MKK and TELEC apply to - but I'm sure its on the net somewhere.
