    Default Amplitude unit question should be dBm not dB

    I have a question about using SSIDer. It shows amplitude in dB. But I think it should be power level at receiving client and should be in dBm.
    What do you think of it. Thanks a lot!

    The use of dBm is accurate under Windows Vista & 7, but I'm not sure what unit Windows XP reports RSSI in. So, dB was used because it's reference-less. We'll probably change it to dBm sometime in the future.

    I'm using Windows 7 actually, but it shows dB as attachment in my previous post. Is it a bug?

    Yes, I should have been clearer in my post. inSSIDer currently displays dB on all versions of Windows, where we should be using dBm.

    is there any possibility to include this change in the next release? or just release a patch for most of the users that have win 7 machines?
    thanks in advances for your help.
