Connects to any available network without asking
Binary package hint: network-manager
When I first installed Ubuntu, network-manager connected to my neighbor's wireless internet connection without asking me. I thought Linux was supposed to be really secure? Lately, I had problems with my wireless router, so it has started doing the same thing again. I should be able to:
1. Tell the manager whether I want it to blindly connect to any network in the area or not
2. Tell it to prefer certain networks
3. Tell it to never connect to certain networks.
Currently it shows radio buttons in the drop-down from the icon. Maybe it should really show checkboxes. Then I can click any I am ok with it connecting to, and it will pick the best one available from those I have selected.
