> You have to configure the source to use the 802.11a channels. By default the airpcap sources use the 11bg channels only. Editing the 11a channels w/out pointing the source at them won't change anything.

Could you please give more details: (are the following what you mean????)

1) Edit the default 11g channels:


2) add sourcechannels line
