Important! Change the Country Code

If your access point is configured for the World Regulatory Domain, it is important to set the country code to the country in which the AP will be deployed to meet regulatory requirements and for optimal wireless operation. To do this, follow these steps:

  • The country code selection is for World models only and is not available to FCC, CAN, and other country-specific models. Per FCC regulations, all Wi-Fi products marketed in the United States must be set to U.S. channels only.
