Just for you (and others) reference, just because you're overriding
the regulatory domain with a specific value doesn't mean the NIC has
all the calibration data you need for operation on those channels.
For example, just because you can configure a NIC to be in the japan
country code, doesn't instantly give you access to the two 4.9ghz
There's more involved then just overriding the regulatory domain.
Hence, if it's an AR5416 or later, we can easily inspect the EEPROM
calibration/channel edge values and see what the NIC is configured
for. It's possible your NIC has channel edges which exclude > channel
11. At which point you won't be able to use those frequencies without
(further) breaking all kinds of potential legal issues.
