Time to ask a question. When connected to a wireless signal, there is a 
Status dialog that opens up to give the connection speed, Connection time, 
network name, number of packets. There is also a "Signal Strength" label but 
nothing in text following. I suspect that it's in color, since also appears 
to not be a graphic.

Has anyone found a way to identify this and articulate a relative value of 
the signal strength?

Or is there another application available that can run on a PC that can 
monitor the wireless signal and give the strength as a value?
