  15. 15. If “Allow Any Country” is selected and 802.11d is checked (802.11d is checked by default) the mobile device will not scan for the AP ESSID until the AP provides the regulatory country info in its probe response. The ESSID is then exchanged and the association process will happen. If there is a specific country selected, 802.11d must then be unchecked as now the mobile client is setting its own regulatory country which it deliveres to the AP on probe request.
