    I just want to know what "txPowerTuning" really does to the hardware since the number, which is to be entered, doesn't seem to be in dBm nor mW. A documentation of the command itself would be appreciated if anyone could provide.

    ...and there is the problem with wireless cards and power output. Different manufacturers use different scales/settings/designs for wireless cards. There isn't 1 standard to follow when building cards as far as power output design specs are concerned. One manufacturer's documentation (and hardware output) may give a range of 1 to 25 (25 what who knows!), another manufacturer may give a range of 2.5 to 17.6 (again, 17.6 who knows) and another may specify 3mw to 100mw. There is no standard...you need (as streaker69 alluded)to contact the manufacturer of your specific card and find out there specifics.

    If you are in the U.S., the FCC may provide some info, since all cards need to be FCC certified. Use the FCC # on the card for your search and you may get some info that way.

    According to the manufacturer Spec's which is easily found on Linksys' website, the normal operating power for this unit is 13dbm which is approximately 20mw.

    What does the txPowerTuning do, who knows, it would probably be best to ask Linksys how it works.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Thank you streaker69 for looking up the specification for my card .
