Anyone have an idea why my wireless connection in XP shows 'Excellent' and in Ubuntu (8.10) shows no more than 51%

My experience has been that the signal scale is different and not consistent between the two. I would not worry too much about it. I work 30 ft from my home access point and sometimes it is 100percent other times it is 50% without moving the notebook computer.
