    I have been looking at the WL command line functions and found something interesting.

    I have both my routers set to 0 for hardware default in the advanced/wireless menu

    When I use the 'wl txpwr1' command I get this:

    On my netgear it tells me: TxPower is 127 qdbm, 31.75 dbm, 1496 mW Override is Off

    on the wrt54g I get: TxPower is 65 qdbm, 16.25 dbm, 42 mW Override is Off

    That is a HUGE difference in transmitting power.

    What are some of you folks gettting for a 'hardware default' setting??

    What is the normal 'default' for a WNR3500l???

    edit: One strange thing. The range listed in the wireless section is 0-400 mw. Is it really running that high??

    Just a simple cut&paste:
    Transmit Power mW (range: 0 - 400, actual max depends on Country selected; use 0 for hardware default

    Clearly there is a problem.

    wl says the default is "-1"
    Tomato says the default is "0".

    If you trust the Tomato GUI and select the "default", wl says it's 1496.

    Is that a Tomato bug that should be fixed? I think so.

    I think that if you select "default" in the Tomato GUI, you should get "default" in the wl.
