Bug#772855: installation-reports: unable to connect to a wifi network on channel 13

Package: installation-reports
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I downloaded Debian 7.7 installation image[1].

I followed the installation procedure and chose wlan0 networki interface
when asked to configure the primary network interface. Then there was no
WLAN on the list of availble networks. It appeared after I changed
channel on my AP from 13 to 1.

I suspect the reason of this problem MAY be the default regulatory
settings of wifi stack/card driver in the Linux kernel if it is prepared
for the USA where, according to Wikipedia[2], the channel may be used
only under certain conditions.

Było mi bardzo miło.                                  --- Rurku. --- ...

... Od tej pory wszystko może się zdarzyć. Akcja toczy się...
