Connecting to wifi network on Motorola MC3100

While attempting to connect a Motorola MC3100 to my wifi network, I was getting a popup message saying that I might not be able to connect due to regulatory issues. Looking into the logs, I found the following message.

"Country code not acquired yet"

I guessed some sort of country code has to be sent my the wifi access point for the device to work. So, I looked into hostapd configuration manual and found that in the 'IEEE 802.11 related configuration' section, we can set country codes. So, I changed the following variables:

country_code=<your country code>

When I restarted the wifi hotspot, the device could connect to internet successfully.
