Is there any chance someone could add the option to have the Wireless Plugin also display the signal Percent and not just say good,very good.

like 85% would be very good Quality.

I would like this in the tooltip menu.

No but the Buffalo software does. But I would rather use Wireless monitor.

Actually there are no specifications for percents of signal quality. It is highly depends of hardware and drivers. Hardware reports Signal Strength only. You can see this value in the tips.

Indeed, a percentage of what? It currently shows the signal strength in dB, which is an absolute value, but what would be 100%?

Yuri, the "default 32" skin has a png with 6 state images. Can you specify more than 6, and how does the plugin know how many there are? Because if this was configurable, one could have 20 images with percentages in it each with 5% difference...

Hmm... I can add the minimum and the maximum values of signal strength and calculate the percent using this values.

In the current version WM uses ranges:
< -90 - No Signal
-90...-80 - Very low
-80...-70 - Low
-70...-67 - Good
-67...-57 - Very good
>-57 - Excellent

Windows uses the same values.
