I was just playing with the get commands, for some reason now I only get a response when I use all lower case like this: nvram get wl0_txpower. It's all over my head, but I guess they changed it when they went to the 0-100% thing. It seems to report the % now instead of mW.

Also, it would let me do set commands over 100 but it looks like it just makes the slider in the GUI longer (looks funny) and doesn't seem to affect the actual values, they stay capped at whatever the new max is. The slider and set value reset to 100 on router reboot. I don't really care though, I never ran over 100mW anyways and the new max (80mW I think?) works fine for me, just thought I'd share what I saw.

For me sucks. I`m disappointed of asus. Until now I had only asus routers, next month I`m going to USA and I wanted to upgrade my N66U to RT-AC87U but for what...now I have 3 big 9dbi antennas and this stupid router can`t cover a 70mp apartment. I have tried tomato and is better on wifi range but it miss dual wan and openssl s_client for email ip wan change so I`m thinking FRITZ!Box or Netgear for next router.

Ive had great experience with increasing the mW from stock to 500mW even to the point whereas i now have decently stable signal in places i used to have no connectivity at all.

And in places where i did have decent but not optimal connection the connection has stabilized A lot.

DBi increased by ~20 here.


Its hard to explain why, especially since its only in a one way direction. Perhaps the upload on my ipad is more stable than my download hence why upping the transmit power helped out greatly? Remote desktoping is a whole lot more fluent now, kind of logical i suppose as that is mostly based on downloading the data. But also webpages react alot faster with loading and that does also require uploading data.

Im happy either way

Just curious if anyone understands why I am getting the "Q2" response (and not the expected "US" response) to three of these commands below. I have not attempted to modify these settings, just trying to understand what they are currently set to and what my options might be to test higher transmit power settings.

Router: RT-N66U
Firmware: 3.0.0.4.374.43_2-05j9527

### To CHECK your current region, each line entered will result in the answer.
nvram get pci/1/1/ccode Response is "US"
nvram get pci/2/1/ccode Response is "Q2"
nvram get wl0_country_code Response is "US"
nvram get wl1_country_code Response is "Q2"
nvram get regulation_domain Response is "US"
nvram get regulation_domain_5G Response is "Q2"

### To CHECK your current transmit power, each line entered will result in answer.
nvram get wl_TxPower Response is "200"
nvram get wl0_TxPower Response is "200"
nvram get wl1_TxPower Response is "200"

It's because you are running the fork code based on 374.43. For the N66U, it carried forward an 'Engineering Mode' setting that changed the defaults from the CFE (there are also changes to the regulation revision, 'regrev' values). We are a bit limited on the N66U in being able to determine the exact effects, but based on some investigations on the AC68U, I believe these make the TxPower settings effective up to the 200mw gui max, as opposed to the 80mW cap imposed by default.
