    Hi all,
    I need to use my wmp54gv2 on channel 14.
    Seems that only japanese device driver supports this channel, but I don't find any working version.

    Can anyone help me ?


    Thank you in advance guys

    Can't find this version on the Japanese site so my guess is that it was ever released for this market. Even if there was one, does your operating system support Japanese? Because the driver and client manager will be.

    What is the advantage to use channel 14 ?
    12 & 13 are even less powerful on my systems !

    Less used, less congestion, less problem on long range because few adaptor in europe supports it...

    May be but I'm not really sure the 14 channel is better than the rarely used 2 to 5 or 7 to 10 or 12 to 13 which are not the best also...

    Exactly. Legal and language support issues aside, it still overlaps with Channel 13 and others so there is no real advantage when all channels are occupied.

    By the way, there is also a question mark over whether it is simply a matter of driver change to access Channel 14. Some users have reported no channel 12 or 13 support after switching from US driver to EU driver on certain adapters so the same may happen when switching to the Japanese driver.

    If you set the locality in the driver settings, you should be able to access channel 14? I never had a problem getting 12, 13 and 14.

    Depending on the driver installation, all the localities are not available...

    Nope. Tried it on an EU version WMP54G and WPC54G - no channel 14 support. However, you last sentence puzzled me - if you had no problem getting 12, 13, and 14 already, why did you start this thread asking for a driver?

    I raised this channel 14 issue not too long ago when this forum and HyperWRT were still very young. You should still be able to dig the old discussions back up through search.
