Package: wicd Version: 1.7.4+tb2-5 Severity: normal I have two APs with the same name, to cover a wide area. These appear differently as different "networks" in the wicd GTK UI. They both require indivdual configuration, individual settings, and so on thus making them appear to be independent.
But yet, clicking "connect" on one of them will quite often actually pick whichever one is the closer stronger signal, regardless of which of the two whose button I clicked on. wicd needs to make up its mind clearly about what the deal is with multiple APs having the same name. Are they part of the same "network", or not? * If they are, I'd expect to see them just once in the list, having to configure password and other settings just once, and generally not even have to think about the fact I have two APs, or * If they are to be separate, then the "connect" button really ought to connect to the one I actually asked for.
