SonicOS 7 wireless client signal strength

Is there anywhere I can see the actual recieved signal strength of wireless clients rather than the simple percentage of signal strength?

    Hi @djhurt1

    didnt you see under the station status submenu?

    I had hoped we could see this in the CLI for the AP like you can on Extreme but I have yet to find that...

    On station status sub-menu, it gives the quality and signal strength as a percentage. Not actual numbers. It would be a much more clear picture with actual numbers/strength.

    I think there is no find excatly number of signal strengt of clients. Because of Radio Signal is a wave not like electricty signal. Signal effects every things ( Wall, Door, cordless phones, windows, plasterboard, and office equipments.) therefore you cannot find out actual strength numbers.

    is there Other brands signal strength number? I don't suppose to.

    other brands show as SNR. (Signal Noise Ratio)

    Yes this is quite common with other "brands" of wireless gear. Additionally, our Sonicwall NSA5600 can show this information.
