I was using iw dev wlan0 station dump to get signal strength in an ad-hoc network, and noticed the output has a signal avg row. As average signal strength is actually what I'm interested in, this could be very useful, but I can't seem to be able to find over which period is this average calculated anywhere. Does anyone have any idea about this?


  • This is Linux. Look at the source for iw. sudo apt-get install apt-src and use it to grab the source. – waltinator Apr 11 '16 at 17:02
