Hey all,

So I bought an Atheros AR9380 from Ebay to put in my Hackintosh, as I recently got an Asus RT-N66U dual band router which can do 450Mb. The trouble I am having is, the 9380 is set to locale "ETSI" (Europe somewhere) with no country code, and goes to a maximum of channel 140. I would ideally like to get this working on channel 149 as this is the best to use in Australia (locale APAC with country code X1).

My question is, after much searching on Google, is there a way to change the locale/country code? I have found no EEPROM tool which works with this adapter, and the rcu.exe which you can use in conjunction with Commview simply states it cannot be used and then bluescreens on exit in Windows. Is there another way or a tool which works to change the locale/country code in not just OSX, but Windows as well? (i.e. a flashing/editing tool for the EEPROM firmware on the chip).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
