The formula for the calculation is dBm = (10Log10(milliWatts)).

But if I was you, I would just go to http://www.terabeam.com/support/calculations/watts-dbm.php they have a calculator! :)

have fun!

Accepted Solution

17 dBm = 17 dB over 1 milliwatt.
17 dB = 10^1.7 = 50
So, 17 dBm = 50 milliwatt (mW).
