Thanks, but I need the conversion table to know what is the max RSSI for
each vendor, for example as you see in the attached paper, for cisco Max
RSSI is 100, for Atheros is 60, then I have to convert the numbers i get
after the percentage convertion to dbm , the last step is signal/noise
(dm) which is the subtraction of signal from noise.
So , pls look at the paper attached, i need such a table for other
vendoirs as my card Orinoco .
thanks again
