-  * [easy, added 6/10] If we're running without a user-specified SSID, and we can't associate with the best-signal network due to e.g. encryption, try the others. Possibly extend this to trying others if we get a DHCP that doesn'​t provide PXE options. +  * <del>[easy, added 6/10] If we're running without a user-specified SSID, and we can't associate with the best-signal network due to e.g. encryption, try the others.

The minimal automatic functionality we have now (associate with strongest-signal if SSID is blank) should be enough
-  * [easy] Provide command-line facilities to see what the card's doing, or extend `ifstat'​ to show it. (Channel, BSSID, signal strength, etc; this stuff can be very useful for network debugging.) Possibly provide a facility to scan for all networks (one way of doing that is prototyped in net80211.h, but I haven'​t implemented it).+  * [easy] Provide command-line facilities to see what the card's doing, or extend `ifstat'​ to show it.

   * <​del>​[easy] Include error message tables for the 802.11 status and reason codes. These would be rather big, but "​association denied - status 12" is of no help to anyone who doesn'​t have the 802.11 standard on hand. Perhaps we should just teach them to gpxebot, and/or figure out a way to encode them into the 32-bit return code space.</​del>​ Error encoding done 6/12   * <​del>​[easy] Include error message tables for the 802.11 status and reason codes.
