RSSI = received signal strength indication. All you have to do is look at the RSSI. Don't know of anything that shows it in just %.

OK, I am sitting right next to my router, the signal strength should be around 100%, but the RSSI show like 40-50. WTF? So obviously it is NOT what I am looking for, I am looking for a software that show me 90-100% signal strength.

Where is a good software, simple and easy to look at just the % withOUT all that complication?

The higher the RSSI number, the stronger the signal. The closer you get to NOT being in the negatives, the better the signal strength. -90 is terrible, -20 - 35 seems to be normal full strength. But if you're still wanting %, wait for some other suggestions I guess. I don't know of anything.

Try out Wifi Meter if you want a "percentage" shown.
