    Default Airodump Doesn't Display Power

    Hey everyone,

    I've managed to get my Late 08' Macbook Pro to dual boot BT5 with little or no problems at all. It does indeed support injection with its native wifi card and I've been cracking everything I can get my hands on.

    However, I can't seem to have Airodump-ng display the power of scanned access points for some reason. Results shown are only "0" or "-1".

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    System Information:

    Late 08 Penryn Model
    Airport Extreme Chipset: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (

    I'm fairly new to both Forums and Linux, so feel free to let me know if I'm not providing the proper information. In short: Fire up your flame guns.

    Now would be a good time to start reading the supplied documentation. This is a widely covered topic and no need to rehash it here yet again.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
