You cannot change the laws of physics.
Sugar Neighbourhood View contains the results of a scan of the IEEE
802.11g signals being received. If you have only the three mesh network
points, then there are no other signals available.
If you like, and you seem like the sort of person who can use a command
line, given the amount of typing you just did ... you can also use the
Linux command "iwlist eth0 scan" at the root prompt in the Terminal
activity, to obtain a precise technical description of the wireless scan
results. This will show to you that Sugar is not hiding anything from
It may be possible to connect the underlying Linux operating system to
the internet through your mobile telephone. But this is not a Sugar
problem. The general sequence is to connect the telephone, load the
appropriate kernel module (usually something like the option module),
and configure pppd. The kernel you have might not have the option
module available. The laptop you have might not have pppd installed.
