Actually, I wanted to ask why we were forced to default settings in
the last couple of years. Some forum thread indicated that it was an
FCC imposed restriction regarding distribution in the USA.
The OEM firmware had always allowed country and channel selection from
the dropdown menu, and the EEPROM setting mostly contains zero anyway.
I had even considered forking OpenWRT because of this, but that seemed
a bit silly just for this single little change.
