Subject:Non-US 802.11a Channels not working
Date:11:59:31 06/11/2007

Hey there,

currently I'm preparing my equipment for scanning 802.11a/b/g networks. I'm using Ubiquiti SRC 802.11a/b/g-Cards with Atheros chipset. I changed the countrycode properly and extra/listchan.pl gives me the following:

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 120, 124, 128, 132, 136, 140

As you can see, channels 100-140 (EU only) are available. But if I include them in the channel-hopping list, Kismet just shows "--" as current channel. 1-13 and 36-64 seem to work. Also the US-only channels 147-167 are correctly displayed, if I change the countrycode and include them.

Unfortunately I cannot test if networks on channel 100-140 are still detected, but I'm afraid they won't.

Any ideas?


Thanks, best regards
