Description

A nice feature that I never found in any box is the hability of ordering all
the nearby access points or ad-hoc peers by custom parameter (pwr,essid,etc)
when listing them via command line or web interface; I always have to code
a script to list the APs properly :-P

A nice feature in pfSense would be to display the nearby APs by power level.
This could be easily implemented in pfSense's web interface wireless status page.
(https://pfsense/status_wireless.php)

This feature can be extended by offering the possibility to the user to choose
which parameter (bssid,mac,pwr,etc) is used to perform the ordering algorithm.

Cheers

Borja.
