Hey, i was wondering if 2.4ghz channels 12+ are illegal in Canada?
could be the US only allows channels 1-11 so probably.
i think that channels 11+ are for the UK and europe and all
not sure just google it
i've looked everywhere i know, and i can't seem to find out if its illegal or not....could someone try to find out for me. Im really stumped :-S
"What wireless channels does the US, Canada and South America support?
Channels 1 to 11. "
Canada and the USA are the same.
As a secondary source .. "Note: The available channels supported by the wireless products in various countries are different. For example, Channels 1 to 11 are supported in the U.S. and Canada, and Channels 1 to 13 are supported in Europe and Australia." -http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/BuyersGuide/FAQDetail.asp?TextID=425&SetID=80
This took a 30second google search.
how come channels after 11 are illegal in the us??
Rules are different !
How come broadcasting on the FM Band is ilegal in Europe ?
....same answer....different countries have different laws.
Ask the people that makes the laws !

unless it is reported to the authorities as a problem i would guess the authorities do not actually monitor the frequencies too much. it would just be a never ending impossible task to police.
