I have a netgear router as well (WGT624v4) and to change the channel to something other than 6 you need to select "Mode: b and g" rather than "Auto 108Mbps" under your wireless settings.
As for the country code, if you're stuck on Europe you should be fine. The Europe region supports channels 1-13 which is the least restrictive set aside from Japan at 1-14. The US is 1-11. From your asking about channel 11 specifically I'm going to assume that you're in the US where that is the upper limit. Just remember to avoid channels 12 and 13 on your router setup and there will be no difference between your router and a native US router.

Re: country setting grayed out
You must update the router's firmware to be able for you to change the channel. That's odd because all wireless routers have channel selection regardless of what country code it uses. Well, download the firmware first from the Netgear site and install it.

Ah, the UK is a little big for one zipcode, but UK and Canadian zipcodes look like that; Europe's not much different, but Araby and Africa have a modified grid format. The area code is typically +1 (nnn) where nnn is the country code (071 for England, 417 for Nigeria (or the south, now,) etc.) Sorted?
Unfortunately, all the firmware appears to be in english for this model that I can find, but you can try going to d-link.com and choose the country of the language you wish, and see if firmware is available in that language. CAUTION! Using firmware from a country other than the country of origin of the router MAY RENDER THE UNIT INOPERABLE. Attempting to flash the unit with firmware from another location is NOT recommended.

This at least gets you the correct documentation for the device.
IF you need any additional help on top of this enter a comment to this message and I will respond when available.
Please provide the revision number you found above so I can get the correct documentation too.
The router only operates on channel 6 when set to Auto 108Mbps mode.
The country setting is jammed on US because the router seems to ship everywhere with the US firmware so selecting any other country is fruitless. You can solve this problem by going to the Netgear website and downloading firmware for non-US countries. The non-US firmware also has a number of other bug-fixes too. Remember to connect the router directly to the computer using an ethernet cable when doing the update.
