Of course. The problem is that the kernel doesn't know what the correct 
regulatory domain is. I think some drivers can notify it if they have a 
country code in their EEPROM, and starting with 2.6.29, a code can be 
received from an AP. I had to set the domain. If you look at the daemon 
script, all it does is "iw reg set XX". The kernel seems to use US by 
default (although it should probably use 00).
