    Default Signal Strength Meter

    Anyone know if there is a signal strength meter available for 2.4gHz?

    I need to correctly align a dish over a large distance.

    Agreed. But for novices it is a lot more difficult to setup. The very easy setup I use is an SL2511CD+Ext2 PCMCIA card with a variety of adapters to link to various antenna's. I then use this with netstumbler on my laptop to quickly align any antenna.

    For 5.8 GHz, since I am using Mikrotik for that I use the built in alignment tools.
