Missing Option 'Transmit Power'? - TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 N900



  • Hi,

    My Problem:
    -> missing option to change transmit power of wireless card in wireless interface options. (see attachment).
    In the pfSense docs there is an option to change transmit power:
    https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Wireless_Details

    Already tried: manual changes to the card 'ifconfig' won't work either:

    
    $ ifconfig ath0 list chan
    ifconfig: unable to get channel information: Invalid argument
    
    

    Wireless Card:
    TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 N900

    System:
    2.2.1-RELEASE (amd64)

    
    ifconfig -v ath0
    ath0: flags=8843 <up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>metric 0 mtu 2290
    ether ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    nd6 options=21 <performnud,auto_linklocal>media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11ng <hostap>status: running</hostap></performnud,auto_linklocal></up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast> 
    

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: Could the following notification/error be related to this issue?

    I get the vga console output spammed in addition to thesys log with this notifications/errors:

    That option is removed since it did not work anyway, plus people were trying to do retarded things with that.
