Increasing RF power on Access Points using snmp commands

Increasing RF power on Access Points using snmp commands

For Linksys WAP11, SMC MC2655W and the Netgear ME102. In my testing I used a Linksys WAP 11. These same commands may or may not work with other brands.
Before any of this worked I needed to upgrade my firmware to 1.4g.5. It’s likley that it will work with later versions but I have not tested it. All the tcpdump output and snmp commands are done in Linux. There are ports of these programs in Windows as well.

Using the information from the above article I sniffed the snmp information to set power in tcpdump. Note: the word “string” is the read/write snmp community string:

 15:50:28.641418 > 192.168.2.233.32770 > 192.168.2.2.snmp: C=string   SetRequest(46) .1.3.6.1.4.1.410.1.1.8.8.0=c7_c3_bf_bd_bb_bb_bb_b9_b9_b9_b9_b9_b9_b9
