Re: CVS-2-2 NMApplet empty bar explained


iwlib.c in WEXT says (in the example) 
   * 2) value is -54dBm. noise floor of the radio is -104dBm.
   *    qual->value = -54 = 202 ; range->max_qual.value = -104 = 152
i'm confused. why is the max value the noise floor??? in Atheros chips,
given the value in dBm comes from RSSI, should max_qual.value not be
MAX_RSSI (converted into dBm)?
