What I described was with the machines about 2 feet from the AP and all in
the same location so I have a direct comparison - the signal strength at
that location is showing upper 90's in percent.  I can't think of any
explanation for the differences other than driver differences... but maybe
you know more about this than I do?

I use rsync regularly to run backups and to copy update rpms so I see these
numbers coming up with a lot of consistency.
