Comment 167 for bug 414560

I've since switched to WICD which has been flawless for the last 18 hours.
To be fair, the problems might be due to NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant.
NM keeps wpa_supplicant constantly scanning, while WICD stops scanning once a connection has been established.
If NM has an option to stop scanning once a connection has been established, that would be better. It wouldn't make sense to have a connection established and still keep scanning for new networks. Not many would want to have their current connection broken just to switch to another connection with a X% stronger signal.
I've really want to go back to NM though, as it has 3G Modem support which is great.
