[PATCH 2/3] Add network specific AP black- & whitelists

Stefan Tomanek stefan.tomanek at wertarbyte.de
Mon Dec 15 07:24:36 EST 2014


This change allows the configuration options "bssid_whitelist" and
"bssid_blacklist" to limit the AP selection of a network to a specified
(finite) set or discard certain APs.

This can be useful for environments where multiple networks operate using the
same ESSID and where roaming between those is not desired.

It is also useful to ignore a faulty or otherwise unwanted AP.
