hi!
i'm using Kismet with Ubiquiti SRC and Madwifi (on Ubuntu). i was searching for information about signal level displayed by Kismet and i found two versions:

1) on Madwifi official forum it's written that the newest versions of the Madwifi drivers (from 0.9.3 and ahead) give this value as the SNR (signal to noise ratio)
while

2) on another article i found that with Atheros chipsets you have to do RSSI conversions because they measure this value as a percentage of their inner maximunm level supported...

my cardbus has an Atheros chip but i use MAdwifi 0.94... which one shall i have to trust?!?
thanx, bye
