I searched the web to get an answer, but couldn't find one. Does this option do anything at all? I installed Tomato and reduced this to 1 mw, applied the change, and rebooted the router. Using my computer and cell phone, I monitored the power from the router and there was absolutely no difference.
I know too much power creates heat and noise and may decrease performance, but shouldn't lowering the power have an effect on the power coming from the router? I had the same experience with ddwrt.
I'm using a new Asus RT-N16.
