    155 Locations can only override the set of preferred networks or choose to connect to all open networks. In order to look for available networks you can use the Deskbar replicant or click on "`Add:`".
     159All networks you ever connected to are always visible in the networks list, but they are placed at the bottom and marked with "Out of reach". Use "`[Edit...]`" to change whether the network should be automatically connected to (can be overridden per location) and configure basic network preferences.
