Hello guys,

I am in need of a wireless network card that allows for multiple transmit power settings (the more the merrier), any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

What power levels are you looking for, and for what reason? Usually the hardware uses the best possible transmit power level.

i am conducting and experient and i need to use as many different transmit power as possible. there is a cisco 350, but it only supports 6 different transmit settings and it would be awesome if i could find one with more settings, do you guys know of any?

Set your transmitter to it's maximum power and make an attenuator for it. That would make far more sense. Some of the peeps here good with RF may be able to help you with a variable attenuator. Obviously the frequency is in the 2.4ghz range.

Hopefully from other users here. Wait for someone else to respond, don't be impatient. What you need is a variable 2.4GHZ attenuator.

It will have to be a wireless card which has or accepts an external antenna connector.

Do you need to know the actual levels or just be able to vary them?

My first thought was to use a foil or metal sleeve over the antenna adjusting how much of the antenna is encased in the sleeve. This would vary the signal strength from the antenna. Worth a try, easy and inexpensive.:)
