2.4 Power settings on satellites

2.4 Power settings on satellites

Hi

I saw this thread buts quite old
https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Adjusting-signal-strength-per-satellite/td-p/1511827

Is there still no way to adjust the satellites 2.4 power level, even through telnet?

Might ask @SW_ if there is a telnet solution.
