Forum Thread: AWUS036NHA Power Up.

Anyone managed to increase power on AWUS036NHA? Please, explain how. I've found few posts online, but none of them seem to worked for me.

I've got the AWUS036H but the following steps work for me:

  1. power down your network card (mine shows as wlan1): ifconfig wlan1 down
  2. set your network card to a land code that allows higher tx power; GY for Guyana works for me: iw reg set GY
  3. increase the tx power to 30 (the AWUSH036H allows up to 30 dbm): iwconfig wlan1 txpower 30
  4. reactivate your network card: ifconfig wlan1 up
  5. check the tx power with iwconfig

I hope this gets you out of the woods.

I believe I've tried this one, though used Bolivia instead Guyana, but iwconfig still showing me that I'm at 20, though figures seem to change on wavemon.
