Converting signal strength from bars to RSSI



Did you know you can use ALT+NMLL to show the signal strength in RSSI form rather than instead of bars? It’s an interesting way to look at signal strength and I wouldn’t mind displaying it rather than the bars. The above table shows the translation between number of bars and RSSI. The RSSI numbers are a vendor independent standard. That means that they mean something different from each vendor compared to the standard dBm’s.

Does anybody know how to convert them?
