My XA2 (Ultra and normal) does not find any wifi on channel 13. Does anyone else have corresponding problems?

@DaveRo I guess this problem is device specific

It does not even work in Android with offical Stock Rom. so.. i think it will be hard to activate it ;)

Short answer: insert a sim card and it will work.

Long(er) answer: The firmware apparently ignores channel 12 and 13 if the device location cannot be determined: in North America these channels are not available, in europe these channels can be used. I suppose with an inserted sim card and a cellular connection the device knows the country, and then a Wi-Fi network on these channels is usable if permitted. My solution was to use a Wi-Fi channel always available.

I have a German sim card inserted and it doesn't work

In which part of the world do you use your mobile?

FYI, I am in Germany with a german ;) sim card and for me the sim card made all the difference. I forgot to tell that my XA2 is still on Android 8. I don't know if device behaviour is different with Sailfish.
