Hmm.. that's interesting, since somebody said with hw_algo signal level 
looks a little bit lesser.
Ideally the hw_algo should work "much" better than sw_algo, and probably 
the issues are slightly different from card to card.

Anyway this can be sorted out i think.

So i believe, the sw_algo and the related patches should be okay. I need 
to look a bit further as to why hw_algo looks bad ATM.
I will keep you updated on the findings.

Note: my ISP has some trouble on their switch on their port and might 
not get fixed before Monday, as it is all holidays here. But i will try 
to work out on the aspects in the meantime.
