Setting the gain there will not change your EIRP.  That is used for information purposes if you have a WLSE.  So to get the most out of your setup, you would set your TX power to 100mW (20dBm).  You maximum EIRP is your TX in dBm plus your antenna gain minus connectors, cable and or lightning protection.
