Malformed Access Points in the Network Applet

This is something I'm not quite sure of -- Occasionally, I see malformed names or (quite rarely) duplicates of a network access points.

Here's a screenshot:

This AP isn't mine, so it could possibly be happening due to a poor signal?

Or... maybe my old NetGear, Inc. WN111(v2) RangeMax Next Wireless [Atheros AR9170+AR9101] USB Adapter is getting old, very old...

Or... is the network applet playing up? This does occur on regular Ubuntu and many past versions, and disabling Networking and re-enabling it corrects the list.


It's not a massive problem, but if you've come across malformed access points, this is the thread to share! :smile:
