Topic: Which router really support 501 mW TX Power?

The content of this topic has been archived between 25 Apr 2018 and 1 May 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

And what is the "official" way to measure the dBm?

Buffalo G450H (3 antennas): Luci can set upto 30dBm, but status shows 20dBm only.
Tplink WR1043ND: same, Luci can set upto 30dBm, but status shows 20dBm only.
TPlink WR941ND: Luci can set upto 30dBm, status shows 23dBm

All are running with Barrier Breaker, and US region.

I'll check my WR841N this evening.

WDR3600 22dBm on 2.4 ghz 19dBm on 5 ghz

My wr841n with AA 12.09 has txpower = 21.
I wonder how I can find the max value I can achieve?
