[MLB-WIRELESS] Setting different Regulatory Domains?

Hi Emdeex,

Setting the regulatory domain (in my experience) only affects which 
channels (and hence) which frequencies you can select/use.

Here is a brief comparison of the frequencies selectable in the 
different regulatory domains:


Your average home wifi device will have a power output level of 
somewhere between 30-100mW - even though there is a specification for 
the regulatory domain in terms of power output, generally you won't 
actually be able to achieve the maximum power output out of the box - so 
manufacturers don't bother altering the power output when you select the 
specific regulatory domain within your device.

So in short, to answer your question, I don't believe altering the reg. 
domain will alter your power output levels.
