Forum Thread: Txpower Help

Trying to simulate an evil twin AP scenario with Kali and I'm unable to boost the power of my wifi card. I've tried this on my internal card and also on an alfa card with the same unresponsive results:

iwconfig wlan0 txpower 27

When I check back with iwconfig the Tx-power has stayed the same. How do I fix this problem and how does this all work? Thanks

iw reg set BO or in my case iw reg set BZ works. Tx power restrictions depend on the country you live in. With iw reg set you could "change" country.

Yes thanks

I usually do this (in my case it's wlan2)

ifconfig wlan2 down
iw reg set US
iwconfig wlan2 txpower 30
ifconfig wlan2 up
iwconfig (and check your txpower, it should be at 30)
