I notice a problem when viewing 802.11 (wifi) client status on a Cisco 1242AG AP.
My question is about the "Signal to Noise (dBm)" field.
I think that field should be called "Signal to Noise rate"(SNR) . It is a rate , so it should not be called a (dBm) value.
The upper right help link does not tell me well, which links to http://www.cisco.com/web/techdoc/wireless/access_points/online_help/eag/123-08.JA/1100/h_ap_stationview-client.html
You see, not even referring to word of "Signal to Noise (dBm)" but instead "Signal Quality".
Signal Quality - The percentage of signal quality that is good. If this percentage is low, the station may be on the fringe of the coverage area and should be moved closer to the access point.
Then, what is the meaning of the value(23 in my image)? It is a percent value, or the rate of signal power and noise power?
