The higher power cards are not legal in Denmark.  Effective Isotropic
Radiated Power (EIRP) is limited to 100mW in Europe.

There are still unanswered questions about the health implications of
microwave radiation.  I'd much prefer to send the 30mW from my Netgear
cards along a cable to an aerial on the roof, than to bathe my body in
the 300mW from a high-power card on my desk.
