Radio transmit power range in dBm

The radio transmit power can be configured in dBm or as a percentage in FortiAP profiles and override settings.

config wireless-controller wtp-profile
    edit <name>
        config radio-1
            set power-mode {dBm | percentage}
            set power-value <integer>
        end
    next
end

power-mode {dBm | percentage}

Set the radio EIRP power in dBm or by percentage.

power-value <integer>

Set the power value for dBm (1 - 33, default = 27) or percentage (0 - 100, default = 100).

To configure the radio transmit power range in dBm in the GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > FortiAP Profiles, or WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs.
  2. Create a new profile or edit an existing one.
  3. For Transmit power mode, select dBm and adjust the slider to the desired value.

    Sample FortiAP Profile:

    Sample override radio setting in managed FortiAP:

  4. Configure the other settings as needed.
  5. Click OK.
To configure the radio transmit power range in dBm in the CLI:
config wireless-controller wtp-profile
    edit "FAP831F-default"
        config platform
            set type 831F
        end
        set handoff-sta-thresh 55
        set allowaccess https ssh snmp
        config radio-1
            set band 802.11ax-only
            set power-mode dBm
            set power-value 22
            set channel-utilization disable
        end
        config radio-2
            set band 802.11ax-5G
            set power-mode dBm
            set power-value 15
            set channel-utilization disable
            set channel "157" "161"
        end
        config radio-3
            set mode monitor
            set channel-utilization disable
        end
    next
end
To verify the settings in FortiAP:

        txpwr mode     : set by value (22 dBm)
        txpwr cfg/oper : 22/22 (EIRP +0)
