> Finally, are there any other indicators, in Kismet, that give the quality of a given AP? What are the units the "signal level" (and/or "noise level") that Kismet captures and can we use these indicators to indicate wireless link quality?

Newcore has better division between dbm and rssi.

However, in rfmon, most cards report values with a large "crap" factor. So I tend not to believe what they say for signal levels at all.

Plus, anything that reports RSSI, we don't know what it's really reporting. Different manufs use different RSSI scaling and it's all sort of bunk.
