i have completed all the steps with no problems but i cant set txpower higher than 20 dbm....
I use the ALFA AWUS036NHA with the German: GE-AR9271 Chipset
here are my outputs:
uZer@Qu4ntum:~$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
uZer@Qu4ntum:~$ sudo iw reg set BO
uZer@Qu4ntum:~$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower 30
uZer@Qu4ntum:~$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
uZer@Qu4ntum:~$ sudo iwconfig
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
lo no wireless extensions.
and the output of db.txt for Germany (BO was set to 33 dbm too)
# Data from "Frequenznutzungsplan" (as published in April 2008), downloaded from
# For the 5GHz range also see
# The values have been reduced by a factor of 2 (3db) for non TPC devices
# (in other words: devices with TPC can use twice the tx power of this table).
# Note that the docs do not require TPC for 5150--5250; the reduction to
# 100mW thus is not strictly required -- however the conservative 100mW
# limit is used here as the non-interference with radar and satellite
# apps relies on the attenuation by the building walls only in the
# absence of DFS; the neighbour countries have 100mW limit here as well.

i have no idea what i have to do hope anyone could help me
thanks so much !
