Auth server signal strength field (in connections) and gateway ability to get such data.

I create reports using the connections table, it would be very nice if there was another column which represented the DBM of that connected client.

I would think it would be easiest to only take a snapshot of the clients DBM at the time of authentication.

Openwrt on Atheros:

root@aransas_princess_3:~# wlanconfig ath0 list sta ADDR AID CHAN RATE RSSI DBM IDLE TXSEQ TXFRAG RXSEQ RXFRAG CAPS ACAPS ERP STATE MODE 00:14:a5:ae:29:e7 1 1 11M 40 -55 135 837 10 2116 0 ESs 0 3 Normal WME root@aransas_princess_3:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo system type : Atheros AR2315

All hostap station information is in /proc/net/hostap/dev#/

The simplest implementation of this in the gateway would probably be a configuration directive which defines what type of card you have.

That's rather out of scope in the current architecture.

It would have to be implemented as some sort of gateway plugin. Not that it is a bad idea, bu currently we don't even have hook points in the gateway.
