How is the actual network throughput? If it is fine, then actual link
quality is probably good, and the low values displayed just a cosmetic
problem caused by a wrong interpretation of the results reported by the
driverloader slightly adjusts the values to accommodate different and
slightly incompatible ways that various GUI utilities interpret the
numbers reported by drivers. You could try adding a "#define
NETNDIS_OPTIMIZE_QUAL_FOR_KDE" on top of
/usr/lib/driverloader/modules/GPL/netndis.c (in the generic version)
and recompiling the modules with dldrconfig -ka to see if it helps.
