When i updating the prism2 fw from 1.5.6(flash) to 1.7.1(ram) i noticed
that at least the noise level reported by hostap-0.0.4 and iwconfig (ver
26) varies in strange way:

With 1.5.6 fw, the noise level is allways solid -100dBm. But with 1.7.1 fw,
it can be: -100...-256...-1dBm, etc. Is this a fw bug?

In generally, are there other "bad" features in the 1.7.1 firmware? I am
thiking to update the fw 1.7.1 to flash. Any experiences of the 1.7.1 fw?

Best Regards, Jar
