    Default US laws regarding maximum transmit power

    I have an alfa with a 15db parabolic antenna. I have talked to many about my wifi gear, and have been asked by a boat owner if I could get them a setup that would enable them to grab access points with the antenna mounted to their mast.

    My problem is that I don't know if 15db + 500mw = FCC carpet bombing my house.

    Googling for "allowed EIRP 2.4ghz fcc" returns this:

    InterpretingFccRegulations - SeattleWireless

    Then Googling for EIRP calculator turns up a webpage with the following calculator and results.

    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.

    So I'd have to use a 125mW card with my antenna to comply with FCC regs.

    Thats no fun! :P

    Know of any good 125mW or 100mW adapters?

    Thanks.
