I'm at the SU side and the SU shows "Five Green LEDs". In fact the SU shows "Five Green LEDs" even if we swing the antenna a few degrees left - right - up or down. We really have no idea what our RSSI is, but we've made our best judgment splitting the difference between the left - right - up and down sweep. <sigh>
While Alvarion doesn't give you actual RSSI, you can get a running signal-to-noise number. Telnet into the SU, hit 4, 4, 1. You can use those numbers to fine-tune your antenna alignment, if you keep in mind those numbers lag a second or two behind.
(You can also get those numbers from the BreezeConfig software, which is a lot easier to navigate than some of Alvarion's complex menus. A CD with that software should have come with your hardware; if you don't have it, email me offlist and I can hook you up.)
