Change Transmit Power Settings Programmatically for 8260

We have a system that uses Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Cards. I've tried everything I can in order to gain access to the settings using WMI or some other API. I've installed the Power Set tools, but that only seems to give me WMI access to the Intel Ethernet card - not the Wireless card.

Specifically, I need to be able to change the Transmit Power settings via code. I can see in the Advanced Settings for the adapter in Device Manager, that there is a way to do this via a drop down with 5 settings (Highest - Lowest). How can I change this setting via code?

We're running Windows 10.

Hello NickSchweitzer,

 

 

We understand you're looking for a way to change the adapter Transmit Power settings via command line, WMI, or some other API in Windows® 10.

 

 

Generally, we recommend installing the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Enterprise. You can then use the Administrator Tool to create packages with defined settings for your users.

 

 

These are executable packages that then can be installed silently.

If this is not what you were hoping for, please do let us know. I will try and research a bit further to see if we have any alternatives.

 

 

Best regards,

Thank you for the response, but I don't think that will be adequate.

The application we are writing is part of a system for a tablet that we will be running in Kiosk mode (although not a public kiosk). The operator will only have the ability to run a fixed number of applications that we write. Our application will have a simple UI that will allow the user to change the transmission power, and so we need to be able to call this from within our application.

I don't think the Administrator Tool that you referenced will allow that workflow.

Is there another option?
