Requirements Better default network connection choice algorithm (e.g. if USB - Ethernet is connected, use it first source: A Callahan).
This already happens, but perhaps there are bugs. -DanielDrake 16:37, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

This algorithm should be "smart" in its first choice but should also be adjustable in the GUI.

  • Must include choosing wired over wireless, choosing one AP vs. another and choosing Mesh vs. AP.
  • Must minimize time trying to connect to an AP not desired (e.g. must not try to connect to mesh when user expected AP).

Needs further definition.
