I need to configure country code between my wireless communication points. I am using madWIFI, wireless tools and hostapd set up in my ap(board- Linux OS(2.6.10)) , and am using OLITEC stick USB 802.11g card in my Windows machine.

I can communicate successfully using WEP,WPA-PSK and WPA , but I need to configure some more additional options such as Country code and Beacon period and Beacon interval etc.

Between this and a similar previous question of his, it seems like he's in way over his head and he's trying to get SU to do all his homework for him. –  Spiff Apr 8 '10 at 6:14

WEP has nothing to do with country code. Also, Why do you care about country code if your client is 2.4GHz-only?

Edit: The MadWifi project's own website/wiki is a good place to go to get information about configuring those parameters on a MadWifi driver in AP mode:

Okay, I've edited my answer to include links to the MadWifi project's own helpful documentation of how to set a lot of those things. –  Spiff Apr 8 '10 at 6:17
