Bug #254

Changing wifi network ESSID via the GUI does not take effect after save+apply

Description

The /etc/config/wireless file is updated correctly but the actual ESSIDs being used by the live wifi interfaces are not updated as “apply” would suggest.

/sbin/wifi down ; /sbin/wifi up updates them correctly (but may be a bit of a heavy hammer for the task…)
