screenshot - CIS is my home connection. Cataleya from a restaurant - all far from my current position

Device:  Keon from Geeksphone
OS: Boot2Gecko 1.3.0.0-prerelease (02/11)

Preconditions: 
- make sure you were connected to several wifi s from different areas 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to wifi and  check statuses for each entry 

Actual results:
- all entries  are considered in the area

Expected Results:
- those not in the area/or poor connectivity should be mentioned as such
Currently wifi API returns available network list and known network(has been connected before) list separately, and Gaia implements WifiHelper.getAvailableAndKnownNetworks() [1] to combine two lists as scan result.
I think this can be done by checking if a known network is also an available network in that function, and show the result in the settings app.
