Hi, I'm using a RB433 with two ATHEROS AR5213 cards (working at 5 GHz).
I had a link with remote AP, during test I was using 14 dB as TX power.
For error I set TX power to "default", so I've seen 19 dB into bottom box "Current Tx Power".
I was surprised I could reach 19 dB, but my real problem was I lost link to remote radio; then restore the "all rates fixed" mode with 14 dB tx power.
I've thought there could be a problem in the remote device, but through snooper I could see it (about -90 dB signal strength), but no registration.
I said "the PCI radio is out", so I put the antenna on WLAN2: same problem where I can see the radio through snooper, but no registration.
I also changed antenna, but the same.
If I've broken the PCI radio, I can't have broken all two radios (WLAN2 was still unused before).
I tried to change the radio (new RB433, new AR5213 modules) and set the same configuration through export command: now I have the link and the remote radio is registered at -75 dB.
What's wrong, have I really damaged RB433 or pci radio?
