Subject:signal strength per packet
Date:04:33:35 05/04/2006


From some searches of the forums it appears that Kismet does not and can not report signal strengths on a per packet basis.

Is this the case for all chipsets? Is it fundamental to RFMON?

Can you suggest any way, for any chipset, that I could acquire this information? Including driver level hacking..

I am also not sure of the meaning of the power levels Kismet does report. Given that my card is not associating with any network when in passive mode, what do the figures from FetchPower() and FetchChannelPower() actually mean?
