iwlist does not scan for APs on channel 12 & 13


I have a netbook with a onboard WIFI card(Broadcom 5727(rev 01)) and a Realtek RTL8191S USB WIFI donge. Both work.

My problem is; I can't get these to scan for AP's running on channel 12 and 13.

Is there a way to fix this?

Distro: Slackware 13.1

Was the equipment manufactured to be legal in North America? Channels 12 and 13 are not available in the USA and Canada.

Or maybe your driver thinks it is operating in North America.
