Subject:No signal bars, cannot sort on signal strength in new core

Signal strength in rfmon is pretty much completely bunk, so correct, sorting by it is not currently in newcore. I suppose I could add it to the list, but it won't be very near the top; it's not a useful number.

> This was very useful in the prior version. What I do see are orange and grey blocks scrolling along the bottom which I believe are supposed to indicate network activity. If these blocks are supposed to related to signal strength -- if that's where this information has now migrated to -- can someone confirm that for me?
> I cannot determine the signal strength of nearby access points. They are all mixed up together.

I don't understand what you're talking about.

Signal strength is shown as a column in the network list, a column in the client list, numerically in the network and client detail views, and as an optional graph in the network and client detail views.

I don't know what "mixed up together" means.
