max transmit powers Aug 01 2011 09:19PM

Two questions here, first, whats the best way to find out the maximum
transmit power of any given card? I assumed it would be on the FCC
site but for one of my Alfa cards, a awus036eh, last time I searched
their database I managed to find a card with the same id but the photo
and spec was completely different. Now I'm trying to find it again I
can't even find that one.

And second, what is the risk of increasing the transmit power beyond
the level the card is designed to run at? Will the cards cap
themselves and just run to their maximum or will they try to go higher
than they should and potentially burn out or fail? Or is it a mix of
both?

Robin

PS I'm thinking a lot about wifi at the moment, can you tell?
