Hi John,

Rest assured, things are being worked on: :-)

Hm. Reading through your dialog with the suse people, I see yours is
not the same problem I'm having. Mine was discussed much earlier, and
had to do with the kde people deciding that users didn't want to see a
lot of extraneous AP's, so selected only a few to display.

Their mistake, of course, was that where there are many AP's, the one
you want is not necessarily among those displayed, and nothing we poor
users could do would force KNetworkManager to display all AP's detected.
So unless you knew the exact ESSID string to connect to manually, you
were screwed. That's what I was hoping would be fixed soon.

Sorry, I didn't realize there other problems, too.



Have you looked at iwlist from the command line? While I haven't experienced not being able see wireless AP, I have found iwlist to be very thorough in its listing and much more useful for signal strength determination.
