    Default RSSI decreases when inSSIDer is used

    I have a strange phenomena:

    I'm using a g-wireless network on a laptop at home. It works fine (especially when next to the wireless modem) with a connection speed of 56 Mbps, to be expected from a g-adapter (INPROCOMM IPN2220 Wireless LAN Card). I've used it for over 30 minutes without any problems. But, as soon as I start inSSIDer v 2.07 the signal decreases, first it gives some spikes (around -33 dB) and the disappears (-100 dB). The speed reported by the wireless connection drops to 1Mbps, though it still says it is an excellent connection... Actually in Everest a signal strength of around -33 dB is still reported!

    The cabelmodem/wireless router being used is one provided by my provider and is a modified (but only to add telephone via cable) CBN SVG6540E.

    Does anyone understands this behaviour?
