Possible bug in changing txpower

    I am facing a problem in trying to change the topowe using iwconfig tool.

    I saw the airo_ioctl() funcntion and found out that cap_rid is filled with correct values only for some specific needs (like IW_IS_GET  or SIOSIWRATE) but not for Setting the Power. And this in method body correspondng to the switch to SIOSIWTXPOW, the cap_rid used is unitialized and of no use !!

    Could someone plz confirm this ?

      I think you need at least kernel 2.4.21-pre2 (or -pre3) to set the TxPower.  I'm running -pre5; however, it causes a kernel OOPS if you use it too much.  :(
