Subject:dBm/RSSI measurements related or separate?
Date:16:01:39 21/02/2010


I am doing some signal strength measurements in Kismet, and was wondering whether the dBm value reported by Kismet is somehow dervied from the RSSI or signal strength percentage readings, or if it a seperate measurement recieved from the wireless NIC?

The reason I'm asking is that I have a feeling RSSI (and thus percentage) values are not precise enough for my project.
