I'm sure this question has been answered somewhere before, but I cannot find a definitive answer.

In the Kismet log, there is a column labeled "BestSignal." Is this a measurement of the received signal strength in dbm? I am using the Intel 3945ABG wireless adapter. I presume since this value is negative, this is a dbm reading and not an RSSI value, but I am not certain. The range of values is from -93 to -13.

Thank you.
