FWIW, just one more data point: when I ran F10 on my eeepc 901 (ralink
wireless) it showed many more wireless APs in my neighborhood than it
now does on F12. I still get good signal strength on my own AP, but it
seems odd that it now tends to show 1/2 to 2/3 of the number it used
to show. (I now see six or eight, including mine, I used to see 10-14
routinely). I suppose some of them may have gone off the air....

               But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
                         While we were still sinners, 
                              Christ died for us.
