This driver seems to refuse sens values in dBm - but only as positive
numbers - so I am unsure what the appropriate value is in this case -
but it seems that if the wireless driver is able to change the sens
value and it can be set in dBm then your advice is good - however I
did not realise there was so much variation in support on the driver
side and this whole issue is a lot more complicated than I first
