Location identification is an essential area of study in ubiquitous computing. The IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi network is the pioneer in the arena of short range wireless systems and its utility is observed in many domains. This paper elegantly depicts the idea of a localization technique intertwined in Wi-Fi network to facilitate roaming of wireless nodes. The RSSI measurement is carried out with respect to the APs and rules are demarcated for the initial condition. A data base is created and streamlined with the existing rules and rank entries and location is assessed for a specific node of interest. This report expounds the results observed in an Engineering institution where approximately 500 APs are mounted around the campus. The context parameter observed is the location of a client with average signal strength of 75mV.
