Ping and microphone level for the ingame voice comms. If you're not using the ingame voice comms I suggest you start IL2Setup and turn them off (the "Radio Chatter" box on the Sound tab).

For ping, less squares is better.

For microphone level, more squares is louder at the other end. As I don't know of anyone using the ingame voice comms online, I can't comment on what a good level is. Most online players use a 3rd party application for voice comms such as Teamspeak, Ventrillo, RogerWilco, Gamesound, Battlecom.... there are many, but the most popular are the first two mentioned.

I've never been able to get the ingame voice coms to work... at all, and we've all tried in our little group. Best bet is to use TeamSpeak2 as it takes less of your cpu to run.

In-game comms is screwy. You need to NOT use voice activation and bind a key to 'radio mute'... thats actually the push-to-talk button.

Also, bind a key to change channels. Its great. Both teams have thier own comms channel, but there is also a "common" channel where everyone can talk (great for working out minor details and taunting).

Sound quality is bad. You really need to get a buddy to help optimize the mic input. I like it better than those 3rd party voice apps because I can't hear everyones speakers/echos/wives/children/TVs/radios/grandparents/dogs or anything else in the background.
