How to adjust the output power of the wifi module on p0?

Hi, i’m incorporating a P0 into a custom project and our Wi-FI performance is rather poor. In trying to fix it, I’m wondering if I can update the power levels of the P0 module and recompile the code. Since our antennas are embedded in our housing, we have some more margin to work with compared to the Photon.

You can turn them down by altering the nvram settings, but you can’t realistically go up. The output power is set to a level which is generally as loud as possible without sacrificing signal quality (EVM).

Also, turning up TX won’t help your RX.

Tried using a better AP?
