Re: Scannning


The use case, is, as many people with a laptop, to move from a location to another, and not willing to wait 2 minutes because the applet just does not scan fast enough the new networks available.

Does it cost much just to set a menu (as in all Windows) that reset the list of network available and launch a scan immediately ?

Thanks a lot, it would make  life much easier for some of us,

it is not always true, with my ipw2200 sometimes I have to wait around 2 minutes

What's the use-case here again?

Are you suspending, going home, and waking the laptop up and the AP is
not showing up in the menu?

Or are you turning on an access point and expecting it to show up?

Or are you walking from one access point coverage area to another?
