I think that is a good question. I don't know much about this but I=20
have gathered that the number isn't a percent. It is hard to make a=20
percent out of the signal strength because there is really no=20
limit...you could have 200 of the current scale. It really depends on=20
distance and strength of the AP. I personally have gotten 150+. So=20
basically, it is all relative.
