Everthing will work.  The regulatory domain or regulation doesn't apply to the router.  It's for WIRELESS. 

Let me re-interate what I've mentioned previously.

You have a router with a wireless access point that's has a "-A" regulatory domain.  In essence, this WAP can operate with 11 802.11b channels.  And then you are in Albania.  In Europe.

So, here's the scenario:  Your wireless clients will have "-E" regulatory domain, 13 channels.  So when these clients try to operate in a more limited channel you may run into SLOW wireless usage

This is the message Scott and I have been trying to hammer through.  (Scott's being diplomatic.  Me?  I don't know what I'm doing.)

And yes, you are still in contravention to the law of the land when you ENABLE wireless.

Thank you !

i found. Albania  -E

ok , but in the table there's only one "X" on AIR-CAP1552E

So if i buy SRP-547W-E , is ok for me ?

The "-E" or "-A" is only for certification and shipment or is there something else. If i buy "-A" and use in my country , what's is the problem ?

Thank you !

The link I've provided you is mainly to search what Regulatory Domain you need to use your your wireless access points.  The model is irrelevant.  So for Albania, use "-E".

If i buy "-A" and use in my country , what's is the problem ?

Cisco doesn't set what Regulatory Domain you should use.  It's the telecommunication authorities of the country.  No one will stop you for purchasing an un-regulated device in a country, however, whether or not it'll work is the main problem.

For 802.11b, "-A" uses only 11 channels whilst there are 13 channels in "-E'.

ok , but for the moment i have another (not cisco) router ( purchased in USA ) that have only 11 channels (so it's -A) and works perfectly on my office ( i have checked it's channel 9)

So is there any chance that if i purchase -A  , will i have problems ?

Thank you !

I won't answer that question.  You'll have to take the risk yourself if you want to use a wireless device in contravention to the law of the land.

Just to add... It's REGULATION. so if I use an E in the States, I can get in trouble and fined by the FCC that regulates what we can use in the states.

I'm sorry , i don't speak for the problems with the laws , but problems with the router.

So the router will work or not ?

Thank you , and i'm sorry this is my last question.
