Of course, I have no idea how to define these WAPs and how to code the script. Can anyone help?
If you are using KDE, most disros have the application called kwifi. You can set up different access points, keys the whole magilla. As I recall, it still required root to switch which might/might not be a bad thing depending on your point of view. kwifi is sometimes in a meta-package with a bunch of other stuff. It just depends on the distro.
Gnome has something like it, I don't know the name though.
If you are using Suse, I have 9.3 and their kinternet is the best yet. I want to make a debian package because it's -much- easier to use than kwifi.
For CLI, As I recall, you need to work through man iwconfig.
