Thread: RSSI bursts to 0 dBm

  1. #1

    Default RSSI bursts to 0 dBm


    Iím running insider on my notebook (Dell Inspiron 9400) to watch the performance of our WLAN (WRT54GL).

    I see lots of RSSI bursts from distant neighboring networks to RSSI = 0 dBm every few minutes. What does this mean? I cannot believe that this are really bursts of signal intensity. Rather I would assume that the signal intensity was lost at all or fell beneath some threshold. But whatís the difference than to signals that simply fade away?

    Hi Erich,

    RSSI jumps to 0 dbm because that's how it's being reported to inSSIDer by the wireless adapter. There has been a suggestion to improve how inSSIDer handles this that may be included in future releases. Please see this thread:
