Noob notice

Post by Root » Sun Sep 09, 2018 5:04 am

Hello Forum. I just made my first omni directional WiFi antenna and I want to see if there is an increase in Db compared to the crap you get with the USB wireless adapter but I cant figure out how to get there in Vistumbler. I tried but there are so many settings and Im brain dead and therefore lost. Can someone point me in the right direction please? I appreciate your time. Thanks. If this post is in the wrong area feel free to delete it after you throw me out. :D

If you were using the same wireless card, but with and antenna attached, you would just observer signal and RSSI. With signal, higher is better, with RSSI, lower is better. you can also use the graphs to see difference over time.

If you are using a diffent card, you would need to switch interfaces in the Interface menu
