Re: Scannning

I've tried to do so: boot with wireless off, login, wireless activation, click on the applet, 30 seconds of wait, another click on the applet. The result is empty, so there is a problem in this way...

Anyway I didn't really understand why it is scheduled and why can't be done immediately

All right, I didn't know it
I'm sure the user can do a script which does "iwlist eth1 scan", so this is not a nm problem
oh, and if I do "iwlist eth1 scan" my network does not go down...
So how is scan implemented in nm?

Isn't there a redraw function? I know that C APIs are very sad, but I hope there is one!
