Can someone tell me what to look for? I have two SSIDs on an AP: one is WEP and the other is WPA.

I have 5 bars on WEP ssid, but only 2 on the WPA side and eventually down to one.

Hi John,

Actually your are getting the same signal from both SSID's.

The reason that your are getting 5 bars in one and 2 in the other depands on the OS wireless uitlity.

If you will use a wireless sniffer you could see the RSSI reading in the frame header.
