Subject:Power to dBm : how ?
Date:09:49:18 06/03/2009


We're trying Kismet from Backtrack3 livecd and a Cisco PCCard a/b/g with Atheros chipset inside.

Using Kismet, we can see all the SSID flying around, and when we need more infos about a particular BSSID (pressing key i), we noticed we couldn't get the signal's dBm value, but only a "Power" value.
On the other hand, the noise looks like to be displayed in dBm value.

What's the formula to get dBm from a Power value ?

Thanks for any help,
