Setting your geographic location

The maximum allowed transmitter power and permitted radio channels for WiFi networks depend on the region in which the network is located. By default, the WiFi controller is configured for the United States. If you are located in any other region, you need to set your location before you begin configuring wireless networks.

To change the location setting - CLI

To change the country to France, for example, enter

config wireless-controller setting

set country FR


To see the list of country codes, enter a question mark (‘?’) instead of a country code.

Before changing the country setting, you must remove all FortiAP Profiles. To do this, go to WiFi Controller > WiFi Network > FortiAP Profiles.
