I unsuccessfully followed a guide involving wireless-regdb which was supposed to permit raising tx power of wifi antennas and currently I cannot change wifi power the slightest bit higher only lower. Issuing commands with
Code:
iwconfig wlan1 txpower 30dbm
there should be a method to reset everything to default config but Im not sure were to do this.

The_Document,

Not all WiFi devices permit changing Tx power.
The wireless-regdb for your region may limit your Tx power too.

What WiFi do you have?

Both the builtin and external wifi changed power up to 30dbm until I did something with wireless-regdb.
