changing txpower on external card?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys i was trying to change the txpower on an external alfa wireless card (to get a better transmittion) via ssh on the pineapple but was not able to do so, has anybody tried to change it?

the commands i run are

iw reg set BO < this command runs fine >

iwconfig wlan1 txpower 30 < here i get the following error >

Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) :

SET failed on device wlan1 ; invalid argument.

maybe i should have a look on the openwrt forum but figured id ask on here also..

Small stupid question:

Did you use a poweruser to run it. like root ? otherwise use sudo in front.

Also do the region change when your wireless is down.

Thx for your response, appreciate your effort to help.

the wifi is down and after a region change it only allows me to set txpower to 0 i set the region to BO n it accepts that. it wont even allow me to set the txpower back to 20 dBm. also im logged in as root.

i think the problem is with the openwrt's firmware,iv searched their forum couldn't find much that helped..
