    Intention: Improve headroom for 3.3V power supply
    Effective: running change, phase in ASAP
    File: none
    Issue: Problems when running high power cards such as Senao NMP8602+ or
    Action: Change the following component values:
    ALIX.2C-> R83 = 2.2K ohm (was 1.0K / marking 01B)

  • Thanks for posting this. There was a similiar hardwarehack neccessary for the wraps when using high power wlan nics iirc. You also should get a decent psu when using such a card.
