"Frequency" column.

In addition to the "Radio Type" column, could a "Frequency" column be added?

Thank you for your considerations.

Hi Craig -

The "Channel" column is directly related to the frequency. For instance, channel 6 is 2437 MHz, channel 11 is the top of the 2.4 GHz band, and then channel 36 and up are all in the 5 GHz region. At least for me, the thing I look for most is whether the AP is in the 2.4 GHz band or in the 5.x GHz band.

Cheers - Jon N7UV

While it is directly related, it would be nice to have a visual of what freq it is. Andrew did mention that he has thought about adding that column.

Thanks Jon. Totally technically correct. Having such a column would be nice for the sake of sorting. Looking at only two possible matches (2.4 or 5) is easier than looking at channels. All though, spending a lot of time in VS would train a mind. :-)

Thanks.
