Any way to get wireless card to recog Ch 12. In europe

My wireless card is intel pro wireless 3945ABG network card. At the moment the drivers only allow access to channels 1-11 as that is what the FCC regulates. Im in europe for a week and would like my card to access channels 12 and 13 as that is what is used here in the EU. Anyone know how I could get European drivers that allow channels 12 and 13 to be broadcast? When i get back to the states i can do a driver rollback to get original drivers to prevent any FCC fines.

You cannot change the channel allocation with software, it is built into the hardware.

If you must use Ch 12 and 13 you are going to need to buy an EU wireless card.

Damn. Would there be a reason that a Macbook air from the US would be able to access channel 12 here in europe?
