I installed the latest beta firmware on the device, which seems to work pretty stable, but there is just one feature that I am missing, which is the ability the adjust the wireless transmit power.
As I am living in quite a small house, I don't really need the big wireless range that this router has. Now my WiFi network is still visible up to 40 meters outside of my house.
I don't know where to do feature request, so I am posting it here. Will it be possible to add option to change the wireless transmit power, for example in percentages, like 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%?
