Updated to 1.8.0. They are supposed to have fixed some of the roaming stuff. Cannot try now since I'm at work and don't want to reboot the system. Has anyone tested if this patched version is still needed?

I've filled a bug upstream. If anyone is interested on comment, please, do so.

Unfortunately, yes. I tried vanilla 1.6, spikes still happen.

Updated to version 1.6.0. Does anyone know if this is still required? They might have fixed the bug, I don't really know...

Yep, just like the blog post says, it is not good for roaming. Unfortunately.

I didn't know about that solution. It is a good solution for home, but it is unconvenient for many other situations. E.g. I work at the University, and we have eduroam-based connection. That means that we have tens of APs with the same SSID. I want that when I'm sit on my desk scanning is not working. But I also want that when I move to a different room, the computer associates with a different BBSID, and still does not scan :)

You can find similar situations in public transports, city-wide connections, and hotels!

I don't know if it is less or more convenient than this package depending on the situation, but there is an official way to prevent NM from scanning every 2 minutes once a particular WIFI connection is established.

You have to set the BSSID of the access point in the connection settings.

I had the hope that since they claim scanning has changed in this version, our problem was fixed in 1.2, but no :(.

Please, report any problem.
