Thread: db vs dbm

    Default db vs dbm


    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?

    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
