Comment(by SeanDaly):

 I understood Yamaplos to mean mesh networks, not all APs. On an XO, when
 away from my usual AP in the company of other XOs (but possibly showing
 other APs in Neighborhood View), all I care about is the mesh connection;
 I can identify the three icons, but I need to hunt and hover just to find
 their numbers and/or to see which one I am connected to if connected

 Would it be difficult to show the mesh channel number in the circle, then
 change its color upon connection? I could then tell the friends arriving
 later what channel I am on so they could click directly for a connection
 instead of waiting for the polling script. The numbers would also help
 distinguish better the mesh circles from the AP circles.

 Alternatively, perhaps colors instead of numbers, keeping the concentric
 circles? Red for no connection, yellow for trying, green for connected? In
 that case the active mesh network is easily identifiable
