Oh, multiple concurrent values confused users to such an extent that this
major change was made? ;>
Seriously, I haven't tried Gnome on FreeBSD system equipped with wireless
NIC. I would seriously enjoy seeing multiple signal strengths across
several channels, while using the same adapter for data. I have to analyse
wlan coverage on my faculty at work from time to time (drawing nice
multiple signal strength maps). My current solution is custom channel
hopper + signal strength analyzer on iBook, interpolating between
timestamped waypoints from floor map application and drawing the stuff
with General Mapping Tools.
