Radio       Under  the  Radio  user will be able to set or
              get the Transmitting Powervalues, for  the  Control
              Register  31 of the Baseband, for each channel. Reg
              CR31: Under this option user defines  a  value  for
              the transmitted power (Value for the Control regis≠
              ter 31 of the baseband) and it must be in the range
              128  (max)  to  255 (min) in Decimal form. Starting
              from version 0.6 of Access Point SNMP Config  util≠
              ity  it's  possible  to  set power output level for
              your AP. You may set signal power output  in  range
              from  0mw to 100mw by setting value for correspond≠
              ing channel from 0 to 255 (0xFF). The scale  is  as
              follows:
                           Value: 00----------128--------255
                           Power: 0mw--------100mw-------0mw
                   So  to  get  maximum power output from your AP
              set value for corresponding channel to 128  (0x80).
              But  sometimes  better  solution  -  experimentalli
              choose values for best link quality, sometimes  not
              max. More info you can get from:
