    The controlling document is FCC Part 15.247 which specifies 1 watt
    into +6dBi omni antenna (4 watt EIRP) maximum. Anything less is
    legal. Most Wi-Fi devices transmit between +13dBm (20milliwatts) and
    +23dBm (200milliwatts).

    "Wi-Fi" is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance <http://www.wi-fi.org>, an
    industry trade group.

    Technical standards for 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g wireless
    networking are promulgated by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and
    Electronics Engineers) <http://www.ieee.org>.

    Power output of radio devices is regulated, in accordance with
    international agreements, by different governmental agencies in each
    country. In the United States, that agency is the FCC (Federal
    Communications Commission) <http://www.fcc.gov/>.

    Bon appétit.

    And, IEEE 802.11 devices are regulated by part 15 of the FCC rules,
