Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: plasma-widget-networkmanagement

KDE network manager connects often to the weaker of two similarly named
SSID's, causing network packet loss. Gnome nm-applet doesn't seem to
suffer from this. Specifying the BSSID would be a possible workaround if
that worked in KDE, that's a whole other bug report.

Is there any hope for KDE/wireless, the kde wireless app has stunk for
years now.
