Setting your geographic location
The maximum allowed transmitter power and permitted radio channels for WiFi networks depend on the region in which the network is located. By default, the WiFi controller is configured for the United States. If you are located in any other region, you need to set your location before you begin configuring wireless networks.
To change the location setting – CLI
To change the country to France, for example, enter
config wireless-controller setting set country FR
