Re: Connect Button

In the ideal case, the admin would have pre-loaded the list of BSSIDs of
the hidden network into GConf and the user wouldn't have to manually
connect via a button, because NM would be able to match up the scanned
BSSIDs with known SSIDs, and thus would auto-connect.  0.7 needs both
the SSID and a scanned BSSID to complete a connection, so just trying to
connect with the SSID will fail.
Hopefully, I'm missing some context on this. Our public library has a hidden SSID for some reason. To connect with NetworkManager currently (Fedora 8), we just enter the SSID in "connect to other network". Hopefully, "just trying to connect with the SSID" will still work in some fashion.
