    Post Alfa AWUS036H adjust power

    I am using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit and I purchased a new ALFA AWUS036H wireless card. I would like to know if this "1Watt" wireless card is configured for full power.

    iwlist wlan0 txpower results:

    wlan0 unknown transmit-power information.
    Current Tx-Power=27 dBm (501 mW)

    It appears to me that I should be able to increase the power. "iwpriv wlan0 highpower 1" does not work.

    Do I need to patch the new default driver that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit with the aircrack one following these directions: http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=r8187 ?

    Monitor mode and a injection tests seem to work fine with the driver I have installed.

    Could you solve this?

    Is there a simple way of accomplishing this without recompiling drivers each time?

    Thank you!
