We did not understand, if i input 24 db as a value and hit apply , slider remains on 10 but in main window of ccx diagnostic named Status i can see 24 db but in window advanced slider is on 10 but in box for value is 24 db also in the window status, look at the pic and you'll understand what I'm saying.... I think this does not work because i can enter any value that i want i can enter any number higher than 24, higher than 50......etc and it will be shown in this two windows, as it is now 24. Here I'll put 70 db loook at the pictures. read the next post i manage to get 14 db, In a strange way, but I think it does not work --- Double Post Merged, 14 Apr 2014 --- How i get 14 db: In advanced window of rtl utility, i set turbo mode to ON and channel plan to FCC, and preamble mode to SHORT............Other options i did not touch. afterwards I edit 8187b. ini file and set everything from 0 to 1.....hit restart, but nothing happens except that now, I have couple of new windows and option to set wirelles mode in available networks As you can see my Wirelles mode is set by default to 802.11 b so i set it to b\g and after that CCX diagnostic windows looks like this I got 14db only when I changed wirelles mode in available network in to a b\g mode but nothing happens, when i changed wirelles mode in Advanced window od RTL utility....now 14 db remains after restart, now it is permanent value. My opinion is that the strength of the adapter is not increased....and why did this happen, I do not know.
