I am installing my Netgear wireless router, but I can only choose United States from the drop-down list...

If you're installing your Netgear router, and can only choose United States/USA from the options, with all other regions greyed out, you need to update the firmware on your router.
When the firmware is updated, all regions will be available to choose, and you'll be able to select Europe from the drop-down list.

Download the latest firmware for your model/version from the links below here:

Netgear WGT624
Netgear WGR614
Netgear WPN824

To update the firmware, connect your computer to one of the router's 4 LAN ports with an Ethernet cable, log into the router's configuration page and update from the menu along the left (Maintenance /Router upgrade). Please note: updating the firmware will wipe the settings, so please write down any configuration info you'll need.

Note: You don't need to be connected to the Internet to update the firmware.
