Fritzbox 4040 to order from Germany

Hello,

Subject device is suggested by a couple people in the forum. Even I cannot buy it from my country Turkey, I can still have it ordered from a friend living in Germany.

My question is will I have issues to have it run in my country wireless bands? I do not know if that applies to OpenWrt anyway.

Thanks & regards,
Ertan

Turkey mostly follows ETSI regulations (slightly more restrictive, but that's handled easily by setting the correct country code), like all of Europe, so there are no problems to be expected.
