I run 12-CURRENT with very recent ports and I'm posting below a screen of
wpa_gui from the ports, which I do not use (I'm used to edit the file
wpa_supplicant.conf), but it seems that it is able at least to scan for
networks not defined in my file (the upper screen shows SSID from my
file to choose from). Just give it a try.

Aus "Nie wieder Krieg!" wurde "Nie wieder Krieg ohne Deutschlands Truppen"
The "No wars anymore!" changed now to "No wars anymore without German battle groups!"
El "¡Nunca jamás guerra!" ha cambiado a "¡Nunca jamás guerra sin tropas alemanas!"
