If you are using different types of cards, the settings would probably work with a 500mw card, but if you try those settings with a lower power card like the R52, it will fail.

I presume a Ubiquiti model. They are known for the power setting offset. Last time I checked, their high power cards (model SR2) had a 10db offset. 17db in the power setting would be 27db at the radio.

default will work correctly with the offset! just use default for ALL your cards, including the UBNT cards

Hi normis! That is a good idea, but not always practical, or in some of my setups, not always legal. I turn the power down, not up. Most of my setups need more power than an R52, but not the max power of an R52H.

if you can't use default, you must mind the offset that UBNT manual specifies.

You are also changing the wireless setting "tx-power-mode", correct? In the CLI, you don't see this setting unless you use "print advanced".
I agree with normis for most situations. If you can use the default settings, I recommend doing so.
