Thread: db vs dbm

    Default db vs dbm

    Hi;

    i have a doubt about the power scale used in the last version of inSSIDer, because I have always used dBm to meassure power of RF signals and dB to indicates gain or loss.
    Can someone explain me why the use of dB? is this refered to a 1mw signal?

    thks!!!

    The change from dBm to dB is because not all wireless adapters base their RSSI on the same unit. In this case 'dB' simply means decibels of RSSI
