Public bug reported:

My pc is a Panasonic CF-29

My card is : ENGENIUS EMP-8602+S 802.11a/b/g 600mW ( 28 dbm )

I run Kubuntu 10.4

I cannot set the contry code to NO  ( Norway )

iwconfig outputs:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSIDff/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated

iwconfig wlan0 txpower 600mw Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

i have tried: iwpriv wlan0 highpower 1 it puts out : wlan0 no private
