Thanks so much, Steven!
I got my wlan working without gui before, but when logging into another 
network I always had to do some typing with the stylo.
With the gui I can store several pre-defined profiles for different 
locations and quickly switch from one to the other.
Also with the graphical indicator I can easily optimize the range of my 
wlan router (e.g. check different antenna positions etc.)

This is definitely what our newbies were looking for. Shouldn't this be 
included in (or linked to) the "getting started" page?
