Have Ubuntu and XP on separate partitions on Toshiba lappy that is on a Dlink wireless network.XP shows excellent connection while Ubuntu shows 72%.Is there something wrong or could one just be a false reading.Speeds do appear to be the same but hard to tell.

Wireless readings are very rarely accurate - if it working and a steady signal - I wouldn't worry about it.

If you want an accurate reading of your wireless network signal, and any others in the area then try Netstumbler. (http://www.netstumbler.com/downloads/)
