           Summary: kwifimanager switch network script does not provide
                    enough information to switch networks
           Product: kwifimanager
           Version: 3.5.0
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: swinter kde org
        ReportedBy: mswilliamson uwaterloo ca


Version:           3.5.0 (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          GCC 3.4.4-r1 
OS:                Linux

The script kwifimanager generates to switch networks only contains the ESSID of 
the network we wish to switch to. However, when kwifimanager is used in an 
environment where there are multiple access-points with the same ESSID (e.g. a 
corporate network), the effect of the command is none. In this case, I wish to 
switch to an access point that displays a strong signal number. kwifimanager 
should generate a script which specifies at least the channel of the access 
point, and preferably the MAC address of the access point.
