> How do I get RSSI value using Kismet?

Modify your kismet_ui.conf file. The default kismet_ui.conf contains...

> # What columns do we display? Comma seperated. Read the documentation for what
> # columns are valid.
> columns=decay,name,type,wep,channel,packets,flags,ip,size

The README file offers a list of the valid column types:

> clients Number of clients (unique MACs) seen on network
