Wireless Client Suggestions

Hey All,

Just wondering what everyone out there is using as a wireless access client on their laptops.

Atheros comes with my HP laptop but its a POS. I wouldnt mind something that remembered proxy settings depending on location, and automatically connected to a network you knew when you were in range.

The standard one on MAC is good, no, its great! and I had IBM Access Connections on my old IBM (Now Lenovo) laptop and that had everything I wanted, and more, like the ability to set which default printer you wanted for each location...the little things that made it cool to have.

Does anyone know of one that is similar functionality wise, to this? Changing proxy settings all the time and having to change the location gets old quickly.

My Atheros does the autoconnect thing. On my HP NC6000.
Proxy, probably not, never had to use it.
