I'm having some problems changing the EEPROM regulatory domain for my wireless card (ar9580 locked to US 0x0). I can't operate on the frequencies that I'm allowed to use. I've tried changing db.txt with no luck. It adds a couple of extra channels, but not the full channel list that im allowed to use.
I want to try to modify my ath9k driver so that it overrides the EEPROM, but im not really sure how to. I've found some patches to help modify the driver (Openwrt) but I dont know how to add them.
So my question is:
- Do I have to recompile my kernel (3.18.0-kali1-amd64) to add the patches from openwrt), or do I have to download the openwrt image to be able to use the patches? Or have i got it totally wrong and there's another way to do this?
Any help is very much appreciated.
