> The RSSI value is changed abruptly from 45 to 96 dB at intercepting packages 802.11n, is this normal? Can anything be done?

Depends what you were receiving before; if you get, say, a beacon at 1mbit, your effective signal level will be vastly greater than a data frame at a high data rate.

It's also possible that the drivers just report crap.

There's nothing to be done from the kismet side of things, unfortunately, the drivers report what they report on each packet.
