http://www.backtrack-linux.org – Hi, I have a problem with the default IEE driver in BT5 R3 for a Rokland n3 (RT2870/RT3070). If I want to use the 750mW output I can perform: iw reg set BO iwconfig wlan0 txpower 28 iwconfig wlan0 then reports txpower 28. All ok. Now when I associate with a WPA network using wpa_supplicant and the wext drivers, magically something resets my region to ES when WPA comes up, as confirmed by dmesg I've tried adding a country line in my wpa_supplicant.conf but that doesn't seem to have any effect.. Code: country=BO network={         ssid="wLAN SS (HowTos)
