    Problem setting txpower on AWUS036NH

    Hi there
    As the caption states, I have some problems setting the txpower on my AWUS036NH (RT2870/RT3070).
    It not possible to increase nor descrease the txpower. There isn't an error no matter what. If I tip
    iwconfig wlan0 txpower 5000, there isn't any error message or any statement using dmesg.

    I did the following:

    ifconfig wlan0 down
    iw reg set BO
    iwconfig wlan0 channel 1
    iwconfig wlan0 txpower 30

    iwconfig wlan0

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
    Tx-Power=20 dBm
    Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
    Encryption key:off
    Power Management:off


    Calling CRDA for country: BO
    DFS Master region: unset

    Are there any kwown issues - I couldn't find any.
    I tried the same in a virtual machine usng VirtualBox as well as in a stand alone installation.
    In both setups I am facing the same issue.

    Many thanks for help

    Best regards
