    I was going through the aircrack website last night and i found what your looking for:

    Direct quote from aircrack site in airodump doco; about 1/2 way down the page in the field/description table:

    PWR:
    Signal level reported by the card. Its signification depends on the driver, but as the signal gets higher you get closer to the AP or the station. If the BSSID PWR is -1, then the driver doesn’t support signal level reporting. If the PWR is -1 for a limited number of stations then this is for a packet which came from the AP to the client but the client transmissions are out of range for your card. Meaning you are hearing only 1/2 of the communication. If all clients have PWR as -1 then the driver doesn’t support signal level reporting.

    ps. Download the latest aircrack and try to do a injection test to ensure its working, and possibly move closer to the ap.
    <aircrack website here>/doku.php?id=injection_test
    I need over 15 posts to paste the actual link.. its aircrack-ng dot org if you didnt know.

    Thus the post in the newbie area...

    Thanks for all the help from everyone here though! I actually learned a couple extra things during this here process. So now I know I just need to go and get another card. Hopefully one that reports signal strength.

    Unhappy Re:Signal Strength

    Britain is in the grip of a Wi-Fi revolution with offices, homes and classrooms going wireless - but there is concern the technology could carry health risks.
    If you do a search on google look up Panorama and visit BBC NEWS | Programmes | Panorama

    For anyone who hasnt seen this Video I would go look before playing with Signal Strength.

    Sorry I could provide you guys with a Direct hyperlink but the board wont let me as I havent made 15 post apparently....

    Happy Surfing..

    LOL thats put the cat amongst the pidgeons I just posted them a comment on there program.

    Under offcom regulations of 2007 it's illegal in the UK to use someone else's WiFi signal, in case your accessing porn on there line for example.

    But according to the program there are WiFi hotspots springing up al over the country???

    Does anyone else think there missing the bigger picture!?!?!

    Nice Job BBC (sarcasm)

    There is a key difference between using someone else's wifi without their permission (read: theft of services); and using wifi as provided by a cafe or other public establishment, which is perfectly legal assuming you are a customer of said establishment.

    If you don't want to fall into the criminal category, yes.

    If you're down the street from your local cafe wifi spot, using their wireless, and you're not a customer, it's no different than leeching from your neighbors: theft of services.
