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.

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.

SL6 2QL is this the zipcode or area code of UK england?

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?

How to change language on a wireless router dlink

Unfortunately, all the firmware appears to be in english for this model that I can find, but you can try going to 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.

Not being able to change region in wireless settings

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.
