    Well, a friend of mine got a WAP54G here in Portugal with Sveasoft Freya v2.06-1sv installed and he changed the Txpwr value to 84mw, the signal is very strong but he is worried about the possibility of damaging the equipment or health problems. Any ideas about this ? 84mw is equal at how many dBm's ?? 13 ? 15 ?

    Thanks and greetings from Portugal !

    not ure how many dbm 's but damaing the equipment is very unlikely. it might cause more wear and tear on the wap but not that much. @ 84mw seems to be the sweet spot for many people. as for possible health problems very unlikely. unless you use it for a pillow or something but even then i dont see many health problems. hey jdepew you said you were a medical student whats your input. as for the dBm's i am not sure i will have to get back you on that one. try google and try mw to dbm calcualtors

    WRT54G with Alchemy software can be boosted from 28mw to 251mw.

    Your cellular phone send out signal with up to 2W (2000mW). And you have it close to your head :)

    PS you also need to boost the pc card to make use of more power. This is a two way communication equipment.
