for AP mode use "hostapd-rtl", for client configuration follow this guide: https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#Command_Line [^]

That was not the point. I have hostapd up and running. Now I want to reduce tx power but iw does not work.

Perhaps you can explain the hostapd/driver situation?

Both the Driver for the BPI-R1 WLAN interface and hostapd that ship with debian are broken and therefore bananian comes with the driver from https://github.com/dz0ny/rt8192cu [^] and hostapd from https://github.com/jekader/hostapd-rtl. [^]

Unfortunately rt8192cu does not support the nl80211 interface.

Am I right?

On the other hand side I'm quite sure that OpenWrt, which I tried first, offered me the possibility to adjust tx power. At least the webinterface listed it.
