service restart_wireless seems to undo all nvram commit changes on region forcing to EU.

If we can't have the ability to control location in the GUI, then perhaps it could at least display the current settings?
I cannot understand Asus' or Merlin's reticence in allowing end users to set their correct locale easily. If anybody is going to abuse power limits and channel allocations the lack of an 'easy way' is not going to stop them just as it does not stop me or others from setting the correct values (GB too).

You are entitled to your opinion. I won't argue that even though the rules are there for very good reasons.

But you also have the option to not buy or use what doesn't work for you too.

It has been stated many times why this won't change. The situation will only become worse in the future as more and more wireless networks are in play too. Different countries have different laws for different reasons.

Some safety (think hospitals), some military (national security) and some for business purposes I'm sure. But either way you can't ask someone to break the law for you.

If you operate on your own in this regards, well...

Hold your horses there mate. WHERE did I say that I was asking anybody to break the law or help me to do so? You should read what is posted more carefully before jumping to conclusions on what you think you have read.

I have been a licensed amateur radio operator (radio ham) for nearly 40 years and I know considerably more than most people that post here about matters radio; both on a technical and regulatory level. I do not claim to be an expert by any means and many of the hams here are way above my level technically.

My point was [read it well, you got it wrong last time] is that NOT having the adjustment available in the GUI does not stop anybody from altering their regulatory locale. First, they can find any information about different channels and power outputs from many sources and second, if they can do that they can find the info to change it via the command line. Does GUI=illegal and command line=legal as in some weird Linux beardy alternative universe ?

If Merlin and Asus were serious about this, Merlin would have deleted any hints or tips about changing it that has been posted here and Asus would have found a more robust method of locking the router. One could argue that leaving ways to illegally change ones router locale published goes against his ethos of not encouraging illegal activity.

I am in the UK and just want to operate ACCORDING TO THE LAW of my locale and NOT another one. It is not right (we agree on something )and I do not want to risk my ham licence.

There, I feel much better now.
