Package: xfce4-wavelan-plugin
Version: 0.5.3-1
Severity: normal

I think I have a very good wireless card, since the plugin reports me a 102% signal strenght power.

I do not know what sort of calculation it does, but here is my iwconfig

fabio at morpheus:~$ /sbin/iwconfig wlan0
wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"matrix"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point:
          Bit Rate=48 Mb/s   Tx-Power:25 dBm
          RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:100/100  Signal level:-67 dBm  Noise level:-256
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:3462794  Invalid misc:33378259   Missed

fabio at morpheus:~$

with no 102% value.

Thank you.
