If an AP170 is used indoor for example in a warehouse, is it possible to use channel 36-48?
When the Country Code is set to Sweden (752), the only option for channels are "auto" in the dropdown list (if DFS channels are disabled).
Is there a way around this?

The hardware has to follow the regulations for the country you are in. If you want the lower channels you may need to change the AP to an indoor AP and buy antennae to work with your environment.
