    The FAQ on the HyperWRT website says:

    Which value is optimal for Transmit Power?
    Any value between 28mW and 56mW is safe to use.
    Values above 56mW will give you a dirty signal, which results in lower throughput.

    However, I think other firmware boosts power to 251 mw.

    Why is HyperWRT power dirty above 56 but others power is not dirty at 251?

    Is there an optimal value below 251 but above 84, the maximum that HyperWRT provides?

    ive heard that 200mW is best not clean as 84mW but not as dirty as 251mW

    and hypwerwrt supports 251mW you just need the batbox add-on so you can telnet your way to change it

    just copy and paste and click save in the add-ons section

    sleep 5
    wget -P /tmp http://www.wrt54g.com/firmware/HyperWRT/batbox.tar
    tar -x -f /tmp/batbox.tar -C /
    chmod +x /tmp/batbox.sh
    rm /tmp/batbox.tar

    then to change or check your power seting in telnet just type wl txpwr

    and to use telnet if in win2k or xp just click on start run type in cmd then click ok then type in telnet open or what ever ip address you have set on your router
