Forum Thread: Increase Tx-Power Using Kali 2.0

Increase Tx-Power Using Kali 2.0

I was looking for some kind to change the regulatory.bin file in the new version of Kali and couldn't find one. After some tinkering I was finally able to get it done and decided to share.

First follow this great guide:

Before you make the CRDA file, you are going to need to download some of the dependencies.

apt-get install libnl-3-dev libgcrypt11-dev libnl-genl-3-dev

I also had to do a minor edit to the CRDA Makefile

cd crda-1.1.3
gedit Makefile
REGBIN?=/lib/crda/regulatory.bin

I have tried to go through this, but can't get the libgcrypt11-dev package, kali is unable to find the package

Check you have the right repositories for Kali rolling
Verify that your /etc/apt/sources.list looks like this
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
# For source package access, uncomment the following line
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free

Then do
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgcrypt11-dev

I have checked those configs, same issue.
