Subject:invalid signal strength reporting..?
Date:00:16:07 28/01/2006


I'm getting significantly different signal strength readings from kismet and iwconfig, and have reason to believe that kismet is the one in the wrong.

An example:
Kismet reports -50 Power and -90 Noise, sounds beautiful.
But iwconfig tells me the cold hard truth.. -87 Power and -90 Noise

Does anyone know why this might be?

Running Kismet 2005.08.R1 with aironet driver

Tell me if you need any additional info.

Thank you!
