Question / Issue
Signal strength reports 0 dBm (Poor) when dialing.

Answer / Solution
Some PC-Card modems are not able to report signal strength to the LAN-Cell while they are in the process of dialing a connection to the cellular network.  During these few seconds, the LAN-Cell may report a signal strength of 0 dBm (or -125 dBm or some other very weak value).  The LAN-Cell Home screen will refresh after 30 seconds and the signal strength display will be updated with the correct value.  This is normal behavior for many 3G PC-Card modems.
