Absolutely. The receive signal strength (RSSI) measurement is calculated a
little differently depending on
how you want to use it but is still available. Pretty much everything else
is the same.

Which driver set are you using?

Subject: signal strength value with prism 3

I was developing a kind of sniffer to meassure the signal strength value
from client frames, the problem is that I was using a prism 2/2.5 chipset
and it is going to be sold out. It is not going to be produced anymore. The
shop I was buying the wireless cards from is producing the cards with the
prism 3 chipset. Is it possible to monitore the signal strength value with
this chipset? 
Thanks in advance
