Description bluescreenavenger 2010-12-09 05:56:32 UTC
Version:           4.2.0 (using KDE 4.5.80) 
OS:                Linux

Many wifi interference problems come from everyone's router defaulting to the same channel. It would be a great feature for admins/users, if KDE's network scanning could list what channels the surrounding wifi routers are using to allow them to select the best channel. Although they can't use KDE to directly change the wifi channel on the router, it will make it much more integrated then " sudo iwlist  eth1 scan  | grep Channel"

I can't seem to find this KCM here in this list...

Reproducible: Always
