    Default Change the region of the wireless card

    Does anyone know if it's possible to change the region of the wireless card?

    In the US there are only 11 wireless channels and in Europe there are 13 channels.
    I am sure that the US phone has only 11 channels - but the European phone should have 13 channels. (By the way can somebody confirm this?)

    Cool

    Why do you not just setup an AP on channel 13 & 14 and check to see if you can connect?

    Or is that too much trouble and asking some else to do it from your lazy chair is easier?

    Well I really had that problem and that's why I was asking. My home AP was setup to channel 13 and I couldn't connect - although with my Nokia E61 I could see the SSID.
    Oh yeah, there are 13 channels in Europe not 14 and also I don't own an European phone - I just said that the US phone has 11 channels - so please don't post just to get counted.

    I post because I know what I am talking about.

    The 802.11b standard defines a total of 14 frequency channels. The FCC allows channels 1 through 11 within the U.S.; whereas, most of Europe can use channels 1 through 13. In Japan, you have only one choice: channel 14.

    Notice the "most of Europe" since in "most of Europe" [France is a notable exception, for a change] it is allowed to use ALL 14 channels.

    Check System/Library/SystemConfiguration/Aeropuerto.bundle/Aeropuerto

    Offset 1DDF0

    Code:
    Determining scan regions
    Region = JapanRegion = EuropeRegion = North America
    SUP_CHANNEL
    SUP_CHANNEL_FLAGS
    I think if you change the Region Format in Settings > International > Region Format and restart you phone, it might change the wifi Channel numbers.

    Thanks XianLi - the last time I tried to connect to a wireless network that was on channel 12-13 was when I had 1.0.2 on my iPhone - a lot has changed since .
