Dan Williams Connect Button for NetworkManager

I know we have discussed this before, however here at IBM we have found the Connect Now option within NM 0.7.0 to be most useful, especially when trying to connect to tricky hidden SSID´s. Would it be possible to add this to the SVN build of NetworkManager.
Comment 1 Traxtopel 2008-10-10 08:54:43 EDT
can we please please please have this option added,it´s simply killing us at IBM.
I know you want to find a real solution, but this is useful to so many people.
Even on the Mac we have issues with connecting.

So please please can you submit you patch to the svn.
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2008-11-02 17:22:18 EST
Does the existing functionality (Connect to hidden, choose your network from the dropdown, hit OK) work OK for you guys in place of the "Connect now" alternative solution?  If so, please close.  Thanks!
