Mine takes quite some time finding my dlink DIR-300 access point (around
twenty seconds), and a little bit longer logging on (around ten to
fifteen seconds), it's not the same each time (sometimes it takes ages,
sometimes even requiring restarting NetworkManager, but I suspect that's
down to NetworkManager or the wireless interface not waking up well
after the laptop was suspended).  It finds the neighbours, much weaker
signal strength, access points almost immediately (some encrypted, some
open).  I don't know what brands they have, I've never asked them.

My access point is set to announce itself, and the polling interval is
fractions of seconds, so I expect it to be quick to find, though it's
not.
