[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] poor WLAN performance

there is no difference between 10mW and 100mW setting on my device. It
both works the same.

Maybe 100mW are not needed and 10mW is enough for you. I suspect that my
device is not even making 10mW. 100mW minus 15dB would mean something
like 3mW.

The best amplifier is the antenna - which seems to be ok. I can "see",
receive access points from very far away. Just can't connect.
