> Hey all,
> I'm trying to get Kismet to report the Signal Strength and SNR, however, I am not successful at doing so.
> First, when I go to the "Windows" menu, I cannot select the (Network Details...) option, which apparently would let me turn these two options on. for some reason, I can only select the last three options (channel details, gps details, and alerts) from the six total choices.

Select a network then. You also have to be connected to a kismet server.

> Also, I've heard that the Signal Strength and SNR are bottlenecks because the wireless card cannot produce accurate numbers. Does anyone know whether or not this is true?


> If so, is there any known way that I can (using any sort of application/gps/etc, even those other than kismet) get an accurate representation of SNR and sig strength to discover rogue access points?


Alternately: Get internal specs from the company and write your own drivers.


> Thanks
