 Replying to [comment:2 Yamaplos]:
  > IMHO, ease of use makes Sugar better, even if it looked lottery-ish, or
 "overwhelming", an assertion with which I respectfully disagree.  Let's,
 please, focus in that this tool is supposed to be used by people who are
 new to technology, many barely literate, and maybe ugly is good if it
 makes it even the slightest way easier!

 Hmmm. Then I guess my question is; why would anyone care about AP channel
 numbers, especially someone new to technology? For an admin setting up a
 network, I agree it could be useful to see what the tech set-up of the
 wireless spectrum around you is like, but that seems over kill for a
 6-12yr old connecting to an AP.

 What was your usage case that triggered this ticket?
