In doing some connectivity troubleshooting on MAX-BR1 units it seems as if the bargraph display always indicates the 1xRTT RSSI strength at the top versus EV-DO RSSI. Currently I have a unit connected at 3G showing “two bars” of signal strength on Dashboard and inControl2 and looking at the cellular details page under “Signal Strength” at the top it shows RSSI: -101dBm SINR: 3dB which seems to match the “two bar” value displayed.
But If I scroll down the connection details I see:
1xRTT RSSI = -101dBm
EV-DO RSSI = -86dBm
Since I’m connected at 3G not 2G shouldn’t the correct value and bargraph display be the EV-DO RSSI -86dBm value?
Performance wise the connection acts like a -86dBm connection but the bargraph seems to indicate otherwise.
Can anyone clarify the values for me?
