Country code changing with Ralink rt73 chipset
I have a Sweex LW053 USB wifi dongle.
It has a Ralink rt73 chipset.
I have just compiled the 22.214.171.124 kernel with rt73usb as module.
It works real fine... When it allows switching to the proper wifi channel.
Indeed, the dongle default is set to "country code" 1, and
permits only channels 1 to 11 (US setting) whereas France allows
only channels 10 to 13 -- suitable "country code" would be 3 or 5.
To draw the whole picture, I asked Sweex that answered they would
not help for Linux but provided sufficient information to make
sure the dongle may be switched (in Windows ME).
Changing channel of the wifi network is not an option.
Would anyone know how to change that country code setting in the dongle?
