For my feeling speed isn't the problem, but where do I increase the 
timeout? I understand it's in the settings with 0.8.4 but my version is 
older (and I don't want to upgrade before my backup machine is back up. 
I'm waiting for a new PSU for it). Maybe I'll just wait a while, upgrade 
then so I get the new Kaffeine. If someone knows if I can also set it 
somewhere in a configuration file I'll try that first, otherwise I'll 
just wait.

However I do note scanning takes very long for my feeling, so maybe..
