What does SetTxPower mean?
There isn't any docs on this. I want to get the maximum transmit power possible (dropped connections are making my app nearly unusable). Measuring signal strength using Bennet shows a pretty low signal - frequently in the -90 range, even when sitting close by with line-of-sight. I'm currently doing:
var settings = Device.GetModule<ISettings>(); settings.SetTxPower(4);
Also, I'm having a lot of trouble doing reconnects. My app is an extremely simple Net Core app, running on Win10. Would there be any benefit in connectivity to running this on Linux, or is the underlying hardware the limit? If so, would that still be the case in a VM or would that simply add another layer of indirection? -Should- I expect a successful connection if the scan gives me a BLE device?
Finally, any other suggestions to improve connectivity? YMMV - I know, but I live in a rural area (the only wifi I can see is mine), and I just want the damn thing to work. Would buying a dongle improve connectivity? Is there any such thing as BLE range expander?
