WiFi 4.2.9 plus Selection of Access Point using T35

This code expands on the code presented at http://www.tinyclr.com/codeshare/entry/657 and also uses the library developed for the T35 here at http://www.tinyclr.com/codeshare/entry/668 .

Testing has been carried out using the EMX Development System.

Just as a tablet has the ability to change Wireless Access Points as one travels from city to city, a embedded system in a mobile object such as a robot needs the ability to use different wireless access points as it travels about.

The GHI Libraries (for wireless connection) have been quite sensitive to code changes or additions in the area of: scanning for and joining networks. Depending on your processor I believe it is helpful to slow down the code at various points e.g. Thread.Sleep(200). This is an art commonly used in Arduino systems e.g. Delay(100) in microseconds, where it needs delays to some significant degree in order to keep the program being at the right point at the right time.

The output below shows what happens if you do not have the correct pass phrase to gain access to a secured access point. At the point of trying to Join the Network a NetworkInterfaceExtensionException is thrown. However the program then tries to connect to your default network.
