*********************************************************
* MANDATORY: FACTORY DEFAULT RESTORE
(http://ROUTERIP/Advanced_SettingBackup_Content.asp) AND/OR HW RESET IS REQUIRED
AFTER FW UPGRADE *
* ******** A REBOOT / POWER CYCLE IS ALSO RECOMMENDED IN ORDER TO LOAD DEFAULT
CONFIGURATION. *
* DO NOT USE/IMPORT OLD CONFIGURATION FILE FROM A DIFFERENT FW AFTER FLASHING,
JUST CONFIGURE IT MANUALLY FROM SCRATCH. *
*
*
* ALL WIRELESS CHANNELS ARE UNLOCKED AND AVAILABLE ON THIS FW, SO YOUR CLIENTS
COULD NOT USE SOME OF THEM BECAUSE OF REGION LOCK ON THE *

===========

These are the new TX Power level reference values:

1% => 30mW (13.2dBm + 1.5dBm[AG] = 14.7dBm)

25% => 119mW (19.2dBm + 1.5dBm[AG] = 20.7dBm)

50% => 251mW (22.5dBm + 1.5dBm[AG] = 24dBm)

75% => 531mW (25.7dBm + 1.5dBm[AG] = 27.2dBm)

100% => 1000mW (28.5dBm + 1.5dBm[AG] = 30dBm)

By default the FW powerslide is set to 50% (24dBm), for more information about
txpower usage please read:

http://quantenna.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/80211nPowerSettings.pdf

NOTE: This FW will increase wireless signal strength RSSI by 10-24dbm over
stock/other FWs on 2.4 and 5GHZ bands, depending on router model.

ENHANCED MODE / MAXIMUM COVERAGE option (only available on FW versions >= 380.57)
can be used to gain an extra ~7-12dBm (2.4GHZ) / ~3-5dBm (5GHZ).

IMPORTANT NOTE:
===============

Local regional laws regarding RF power transmission and channels use should ALWAYS
be respected when using this software.
