If I'm able to get 802.11n traffic with my network adapter, would I be able to see the RSSI information? what should be the filter to see it?

RSSI value is not in the 802.11 packet. It’s determined by the receiver, and every manufacturer will determine it differently.

    Depending on the definition of RSSI used, you can get RSSI in wireshark packets assuming your NIC driver (doing the capture) supports radiotap headers. – This Aug 13 '18 at 1:22
  • thank you @MikePennington. I also found these display filters: wlan_radio.signal_dbm, wlan.ta == <mac address> – Natiya Aug 13 '18 at 19:22
