# Using WiFi Signal Strength(in dBm) to Determine Linear Form

So I have -62 dBm as my wifi signal strength

What I need to do, and I can't figure it out what i should use.

The formula for dB form to Linear form is 10^(y/10)

The number I got was 10^(-62/10) = 6.3 * 10^(-7)

Another question I have is
If I have noise level, 30 dBs lower than the signal level. How would I obtain the signal level? is it -32dB or something?

Any help is appreciated.

Here are the questions I'm trying to do if it is not clear in my post!

Use 62, times -1 as WiFi signal strength report, in dBm.
1. What is the corresponding strength of the signal in the linear form?
2. The noise level is 30 dB lower than the signal level. What is the corresponding
strength of the noise in the linear form?

So are you trying to determing a RSSI number?

No not an RSSI number

No not an RSSI number. It's just a question I'm trying to do, but i dont understand how i can do conversion

Since RSSI is linear.

You can use that and move forward. That is, unless there was some other unstated goal.
