    Hi everyone,

    I want to use ASUS RT-AC68U router (actually it is T-Mobile's AC1900) with the WiFi booster. The booster requires the input power be no greater than 100mW. How do I make sure that Tx of the router does not exceed 100mW so I don't burn the booster? Also, which antenna port (left, middle or right) is better to use for the booster, if that matters?

    Which firmware should I flash the router with? Should I use Merlin's 374.43_2? Is there a way to set the TX power to 100mW with the official ASUS WRT or latest Merlin? Should I use DD-WRT?

    The plan is to use the router as a wireless repeater of xfinitywifi hotspot.
