We use Infineon Twinpass together with Atheros WiFi min-PCI (AR2414). ath_hal version is, kernel is 2.4.31_mvl31. The problem is that we couldn't configure txpower higher than 15dBm. After rewriting regdomain value using ath_info tool from 0x30 to 0x0 we can get the desired result 18dBm. Could you explain us why 18dBm wasn't configurable previously and why we can do it now?

ath_info output is attached.

Thank you in advance, Renata
