where do you obtain your signal level information? If you read it from 
the output of the 'iwconfig' and the 'iwlist' commands, then please note 
that these values are logarithmic values and this is why they might 
change so fast. These values are expected to be parsed by a front end, 
for example, the gnome wireless applet.

You can have linear values if you prefer. In order to do this, you will 
have to modify the source code of DriverLoader a little bit. While the 
generic package is installed, in the file 
'/usr/lib/driverloader/modules/GPL/netndis.c', look for the 
NETNDIS_OPTIMIZE_QUAL_FOR_KDE define and change it the way you want. 
After that, please run the following commands to re-compile and re-load 
the DriverLoader module:

dldrconfig -k
dldrconfig -i
