What I did was go into properties and set the ssid for the location.
(It will usually be found by the software and offered in the pulldown
menu.)  Once I had a connection, I gave it a name.  Now when I go back
there, I just select that name and it reconnects.  Configuring should
all be done before you give it a name.

I've got three networks/locations named so far.  Works like a charm.

However, I haven't figured out how to delete the screwed up names that I
created while learning how it works.  Anyone know how this is done?
