And thus you have to hand-craft your connect information. Your client
has to do an active scan to find the APs for this SSID, doing it when
you need it, not when it can check other channels in passive scanning

Are any of the APs hidden?
But we're talking about the client side here. There are, unfortunately,
still admins that insist (contrary to all advice) on hiding their SSIDs.
I may (do!) need to connect to one of these nets, and I have no
influence over their policy 8^(.
Sigh. 802.11 scanning is really dorky.
OH, hopefully you only have ONE hidden SSID definition active. If you
have more, then EACH is a separate active scan operation. And on the A
band, boy does this HURT!
