    Wireless Adaptor TX power in dBm


      Within various intel documentation it lists the following explanation with regards to adaptor TX power settings......

      The optimal setting is to set the transmit power at the lowest possible level still compatible with communication quality. The setting allows the maximum number of wireless devices to operate in dense areas. It reduces interference with other devices that share the radio spectrum. If you decrease the transmit power, you reduce the radio coverage.

      • Lowest: Sets the adapter to the lowest transmit power. Increase the number of coverage areas or confine a coverage area. You should reduce the coverage area in high traffic areas to improve overall transmission quality and avoid congestion or interference with other devices.
      • Medium-low, Medium, or Medium-high: Set by country requirements.
      • Highest (Default): Sets the transmit level of the adapter to a maximum. Use this setting in environments with limited radio devices for maximum performance and range.




      What are the dBm ranges or fixed rate associated with each setting???
