That was automatically generated by wpa_gui. I didn't even touch the
configuration file.
Now that I've added two more peers, I have replicated entries:

bash-4.2# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
update_config=1


network={
        ssid="Visitors"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        auth_alg=OPEN
        disabled=1
}

network={
        ssid="Visitors"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        auth_alg=OPEN
        disabled=1
}

network={
        ssid="Visitors"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        auth_alg=OPEN

Notice the "disabled=1"

Shouldn't that be the ones with the highest numbers?
