ubiquiti sr9 28db txpower setting

Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


We are using the SR9 900 mhz card that claims 28db capability. setting the card to highest power still reports 16dBm as max. (I understand the driver reports -10dBm for some reason, thus reporting 26dBm)

Countrycode set to 840, current madwifi tree.

Need to be able to set 28dBm

SR9 amplifier is external. The card's max transmit should be 18dBm. The amplifier does the work.

The SR9 uses slightly fudged power settings check the ubnt dot com website under support. the 16db is actually full power the 700Mw Output. The power offset is 12 Db.
