I had the G4 mW setting to “standard” the way it came default out of the box. Since I am not that familiar with laws in the USA for wireless I left it on Standard because I was not sure if High was not allowed in the US. There is also a low setting, so it must have been on the middle 30mW setting. My G3 can only be used at 30mW, so it was a fair fight as far as I am concerned.
Thanks to James Drake for helping out!
