The FCC want a lock down on routers and third party software that allows people to alter parameters on their routers such as frequency limits, output power, country codes.

TP-LINK (a network hardware firm) issued a statement:

"The FCC requires all manufacturers to prevent [the] user from having any direct ability to change RF parameters (frequency limits, output power, country codes, etc.) In order to keep our products compliant with these implemented regulations, TP-LINK is distributing devices that feature country-specific firmware. Devices sold in the United States will have firmware and wireless settings that ensure compliance with local laws and regulations related to transmission power.
As a result of these necessary changes, users are not able to flash the current generation of open-source, third-party firmware. We are excited to see the creative ways members of the open-source community update the new firmware to meet their needs. However, TP-LINK does not offer any guarantees or technical support for customers attempting to flash any third-party firmware to their devices."

The FCC don't like people tampering around with transmission power. I reckon there is doubt or worry somewhere in the minds of those that are in authority, those who are supposed to protect the public from wireless technologies.
