Comment (by dohmniq):

 I had this problem with my old Dell WiFi card (3945ABG I think)

 I edited /etc/rc.conf so that the country was set at boot by changing a
 line from:

 ifconfig_iwn0="SYNCDHCP WPA"

 to:

 ifconfig_iwn0="SYNCDHCP WPA country gb"

 However, maybe the network manager could do with a box for "extra
 initialisation string", like in the old modem days, which would be added
 to ifconfig args, or even a specific field for WLAN country.

 I have to say that I really struggled to get my Dell card to work in GB
 mode due to Dell Wifi firmware issues.
