This is interesting. The manual for the wireless access point I purchased yesterday says the following:

> INTENDED USE. This device is a 2.4 GHz wireless LAN transceiver,
> intended for indoor home and office use in all EU and EFTA member states.

So it appears it's up to the end user to configure the device correctly in Belgium... but no hint as to the permitted channels is given, the user is expected to work them out from the frequency himself!
