Dan, I agree totally with you that an autoconnect is the way forward,
however until these issues are resolved with connecting, an advanced
option of a connect button, would certainly help us. If we were to
provide you with a patch would you consider adding it?

are there any plans to add a "Connect" button to NetworkManager 0.7.0 as

John W. wondered about that at RH Summit. I'd rather not do that, but
instead try to fix your use-case by using SSID probe-scanning of hidden
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.
