How to see receive signal strength?

    Hi. I want to use two WRT54G for a point to point
    The problem is:
    It is a long range connection (10km) and
    therefore I need good directional antennas.
    To adjust these antennas I need a meter that shows the signal strength.
    This is not a problem with PCI or USB cards,
    but is there a possibility to see this in realtime
    when I use a linksys as a receiver?

    BTW, as I do experiments with my notebook,
    I need mobile network adapters with external
    antenna connectors. I have an Ovislink USB
    WLAN adapter, but this thing gives a receive signal that is 12dB weaker than a realtek PCI
    card. As an Orinoco PC-Card costs more than a WRT54G, this is not a good option.

    Does this firmware provide a realtime
    signal strength detection?
    If so, how?
