thanks a lot for raising the issue.
The NetworkUtilities currently just operate over the default access point.
If we were to use AP as a parameter, a call to these methods could trigger
disconnects and connects on APs and network interfaces,
that would potentially break sessions on other connections.
I feel that this extension would rather complicate matters further.
Another solution could be to move the methods of the
NetworkUtilities to the NetworkInterface - As such the AccessPoint
is clearly determined.
What do you and others think ?
