I have this same problem myself. Not sure if it's my use of the driver, or if the driver supports signal quality reporting.

Regardless I have submitted it as a 'bug'.

Hi rayhaque,

The rt2570 does not report link quality in it's scan results. Link quality is reported in the output of "iwconfig" when the driver is associated with an AP (infrastructure mode) or another IBSS station (adhoc mode). If no association is there, link quality is reported as zero.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
