How to adjust the Wi-Fi transmit power of Nighthawk X6 R8000

I want to adjust the transmit power of the 2.4 GHz band on my Nighthawk X6 R8000 router but cannot find a setting in the firmware (using FW version 1.0.3.4). I see that it is available on other models like the R7000 and R7800, but why is it not for the R8000?

Hi corgi1,

 

I will inquire the transmit power to our engineering team if there are plans to include this. I will get back to you as soon as I have any updates.

Hi corgi1,

This feature will be added but no ETA yet when it will be available.

Increasing power doesn't make a whole lot of difference. If coverage is an issue consider using

AP instead of solving the problem with power level. Increasing power makes the router run hotter,

generates more noise in the signal, can cause more interference on 2.4GHz band which is already congested.

Adjusting TX power level is not allowed by FCC rule change.
