Description

Test cases:

  • scan-wifi to show networks on 5 GHz band,
  • associate with these networks,

Optimisations:

  • new word channels like essid to set a list of channels to scan, or all if unset,
  • a tag NC to contain a default list for channels,

Other considerations:

  • time taken to scan for list of networks,
  • time taken to scan when named network is present,
  • time taken to scan when named network is not present,
  • impact on test /leds.
