txpower setting problem

I have a Veritech VAC2511-D, which is a 200mW PCMCIA card based on the
Prism2.5 chipset I believe.
The firmware is PRI=1.1.1, STA=1.7.4
I am testing between 2 Linux boxes in the same room, with the Veritech
card acting as an access point using the HostAP drivers. However, I
can't seem to be able to tell it not to transmit at 200mW. I'd like to
lower it's output power a bit but the card seems to take no notice of
"iwconfig wlan0 txpower 15dBm".
I also tried setting it via the prism2_param util but that didn't seem
to work either, like so: "prism2_param wlan0 txpower 15dBm"
Is there anything that I'm missing here or can't we change the TX power
on these things?
