This is one of the major contributing factors to LP: #1437913.

I have rebased 2013.02.13-1ubuntu1 on top of Debian 2014.11.18-1, please


Could I get a sponsor upload?  Thank you.

  Please update regulations to support VHT

Status in wireless-regdb package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Only very recent versions of wireless-regdb have support for VHT
  (80mhz channels); in addition, all current kernels have a bug that
  will cause your card to fail to associate with a VHT ap when your
  local regdb didn't allow VHT:


  I have updated the existing Debian bug requesting this too:

  Well, more precisely I have emailed the update but it hasn't gone
  through yet.  :)

  I would recommend updating to 2013.11.27 (current upstream) as it
  includes other regulatory fixes. I would also recommend applying this
  to at least Precise and Trusty, possibly Saucy since it is still

  Here is the update that should post to the Debian bug soon:
  "I would much appreciate this, especially you make the jump to 2013.11.27. The new regdb will also solve issues with 802.11ac; the referenced version appears to be the first with support for 80mhz channels. Without the new regdb (or a patch the kernel that masks the symptoms, below), when you connect to an AP that supports 80mhz channels, you are disconnected with a nearly useless error. Link to the ticket, with details and the symptom-masking patch that will be in future kernels:


  It would be great if we could get the new regdb upstream into Debian
  asap; in the meantime I will try to get an updated version into a ppa
  for Ubuntu users at least. ;)"
