Why is the wi-fi signal meter on my Windows 7 laptop changing all of the time?

The signal strength meter on my Windows 7 laptop keeps changing from two to four bars of strength and back again. It's starting to look like a peak meter from a 1980's stereo. The machine isn't being moved and it's plugged in for power.

Another possible source of problem is some other wireless device either near the router or the laptop interfering with the signal. I used to have a wireless phone sitting near my router and it took me weeks to figure out that it was interfering with the router's signals.
