Set country for wifi in QuickSetup

September 21, 2016 — BarryK
I posted about Quirky not being able to "see" a wifi network:

I have added a dropdown list of country codes in the Network section of QuickSetup.
This will tell the kernel which country the user is in, for the purpose of assigning the correct wifi channels, and the selection is set at every bootup.

There is a "Help" button in QuickSetup that explains the technical details and how it is implemented in Quirky.

This mechanism could be added into individual Wireless setup tools, such as SNS (Simple Network Setup) at a later stage, if deemed necessary.
