tx power related problem.

I am trying to reduce the transmission power of my
802.11 PCI card. It is US robotics prism2 based
chipset. This I want to do to set up a multi hop
connection i.e try to isolate a machine from a third
machine which can be reached through an intermediate
machine.I am using hostAP 0.2.4 driver.
iwconfig wlan0 txpower <somevalue>
Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26)
Set failed on device wlan0 operation not
I also tried to disable auto control of power through
iwpriv wlan0 alc 5 0
iwpriv wlan0 prism2_param 5 0
but not sure which actually is needed for reducing
Then I tried setting the power to -22.5dbm by
iwpriv wlan0 writemif 62 120
Is this right?I am not able o observe visible
changes.Also could anyone please tell me the minimum
