I have problems with location based wifi on/off scheme. Smartphones with poor gps reception (chinese mtk65xx smartphones) and cheap tablets have location based sensors. Therefore I use the ping method to see if wifi should be turned off. Most probably I am on the move when there is no connection and volumes should be higher. It pings a host nearby. Check if it applies to you. (Ping to and is slower). Also implemented.
Now i have an energy efficient wifi checker. ... fdf9f2d937

Any suggestions are welcome.. or a more efficient flow would also be appriciated
