Calculation of signal levels?
I have two different wireless network cards, a Cisco Aironet 350 (AIR-LMC352),
and the Centrino (ipw2100) built into my current Laptop.
When looking at the received signal strength that is reported, I came across the
Aironet client adapter. Looking at the reported signal strength with
received signal strength (those numbers are different for the two client adapters).
Where can I find the information about the factor that is used for the digit/dBm
I've looked for more info about this, myself. I'm not sure I understand your question though: are you asking how the 0-254 value gets converted to dBm or are you asking if DOES get converted to dBm (as opposed to there being some other file where the signal strength is reported by the kernel, in dBm)?
One way to acquire more info from the Aironet card is to look in /proc/drivers/aironet/ethN. This dir contains the following entries: Stats, Status, Config, ESSID, WEP (or something for the key), and two other files, each of which reports deltas related to two of the files already mentioned.
