I'm not quite sure about the 'right' way to do it. I do remember that QtMoko 
used to help by shuffling the strongest signal up to the top of the list. 

The unfortunate bit was that it continued to do so while the user entered 
credentials, and then applied the credentials to the then topmost entry, 
whichever that would be at that moment. Result: mostly no connection, because 
the connection that you entered credentials for tumbled down two or three 
places for a second or so.

Radek (I guess/presume) therefor turned off the dynamic rearrangement of the 
visible-networks-list, cautioning that people in more than one network would 
suffer what you just described. 

I tried adding another network preset (on the 'main' internet tab, one more 
WLAN configuration), but that one does not scan/connect at all.

Sorry for not being of any more help.

Best regards,
