In the following output of the "Show Dot11 association <MAC>" output, does the "Signal Strength" entry show the dBm as the BSSID sees the client, or what the client reports their recieved signal as? Also, is there a page that describes these entries in this output in further detail? One more question, the "Supported Rate" shows Mx rates, would it show them if it was a B/G only client connecting?

Amjad, Thanks for the quick answer. That does make sense. So in clarification, the supported rates entry displays all rates that the AP is capable of as opposed to what the client is capable of or is able to associate to the AP as?
All data rates shown are from AP perspective. the AP supports those data rates. But it does not show any information about what are clients are capable of.
A client can connect to whatever data rate from those supported by the AP. The listed data rates are those who AP accepts clients to use. But AP does not show in the output what clients are capable of. it shows only what itself is capable of and what it allows for clients to use.
Hope this clear. if not please feel free to post your concerns.
