    Default How can I reduce the wlan0 power?

    Under XP my Thinkpad wifi utilities had an option to set the wifi radio power output.

    Is there a way of setting the radio power output under openSUSE?
    My wifi card seems to produce a lot more heat under oS than under XP where I have the power output reduced.

    The utility is /usr/sbin/iwconfig. The command 'man iwconfig' will
    show you how to do it. Run iwconfig first to get the current power,
    then you know the starting point.
