	I'm seeing quite a bit of difference between the RSSI/LQ in ap-utils and
that shown in simpleMonitor that comes with the smartBridges APPO. The
stats show in ap-utils is quite a bit higher. IE:

ap-utils	LQ	RSSI
1 0050FCA5794E	82%	-84dBm  

1 0050FCA5794E	60%	27%(-72dBm)

	These were taken at the same time with simpleMonitor running in VMWare
and ap-utils 1.4 in Fedora FC1. The higher readings seem to be a lot
closer to each other.
