    Default Wicd Calling CRDA for country: ES : USB Wifi card power reduced to Tx-Power=20 dBm

    My Machine: BackTrack 5 R2 Gnome 64 bit : Linux bt 3.2.6 x86_64 GNU/Linux : HDD installed
    Plz see this post:
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...l=1#post219500

    I can go upto Tx-Power=35 dBm

    However when I connect to my AP with Wicd Network Manager, it calls CRDA for country: ES.
    I do not live in that country.

    Please see the output of

    root@bt:~# tail -f /var/log/messages

    Code:
    Jul  5 22:42:21 bt kernel: [16410.681396] cfg80211: Regulatory domain changed to country: ES
    Jul  5 22:42:21 bt kernel: [16410.681398] cfg80211:     (start_freq - end_freq @ bandwidth), (max_antenna_gain, max_eirp)

    Jul  5 22:42:21 bt kernel: [16411.033607] bridge-wlan1: device is wireless, enabling SMAC

    Jul  5 22:42:25 bt kernel: [16411.233691] userif-2: sent link up event.
    Hence the Tx-Power=20 dBm.

    Code:
    root@bt:~/scripts# iwconfig wlan1
    wlan1     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"vodafone"  
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: 74:DD:67:AA:FF:CC   
              Bit Rate=54 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:on
              Link Quality=57/70  Signal level=-53 dBm  
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:3  Invalid misc:23   Missed beacon:0
    Is there a way to stop Wicd calling CRDA for country: ES? I much rather have it call BO.

    Many thanks in advance.
