Change EEPROM regdomain

My atheros wireless cards (ar9580) regdomain is 0x0 (us) which doesn't match my current location, so I can't see the frequencies that I'm actually allowed to see. I've tried changing the eeprom regdomain with no luck ( Is there another way that I can change it? Or should I modify the ath9k driver?

Any help is very much appreciated.

I've tried changing the crda, but when I do iwlist chan I still get the 0x0 frequencies. I've tried reghack(Amd64 ) as well, but I get an error when I execute this command: ./reghack.x86_64.elf /lib/modules/*/ath.ko
