    Hi everyone!

    If i check my router, its says RSSI -70 but if i check the signal quality from the adapter, like with WirelessMon, i have something like -50.

    So which one is the real one and why the quality value is so differente depending if its from the router or the adapter?

    thanks for the info!

    Dunno Tomato, but most likely, both.

    Your router shows the signal received FROM the card, while your card shows the signal received FROM the router.

    which and be drastically diffrrent as one may and most probably does have a stronger transmit power, which would result in a slightly better RSSI reading.
