Hi, I need to get the wifi signal strength from a particular access point for my project. Can I get a C/C++ code for it?

Entirely depends on the application.
Wifi modules (in mobile devices or otherwise) are unique to the module. iOs, Android etc have standardized APIs (Application / Program Interface) for getting that info. PC's have a choice of hardware so each device (or at least manufacturer) would have their own API. In many cases you'll have trouble getting hold of the API for PC, but there's plenty on Google on how to access smart phone wifi apis

All right, thank you. As I can see, you already got a correct answer.

For Windows see the example code at WlanGetAvailableNetworkList function (Windows)[^].

The signal quality is provided by the wlanSignalQuality member of the WLAN_AVAILABLE_NETWORK structure (Windows)[^].
