DescriptionApp-wireless makes incorrect configs and can break the webconfig
Steps To ReproduceThere are multiple bugs here.
Bug 1 - configure wireless interface mode as WEP
If you do this, hostapd will end up with as WPS-PSK config and no WEP key handling is added to the file. Also wpa=3 is set and auth_algs=3. This should mean both WEP and WPA. I believe it should be 1 for WEP only - but then the passphrase needs to be written to file.

Bug 2 - configure wireless interface as WPA-PSK. If you do this, the webconfig will give a "Ooops! Command execution failed" and the IP you set will be wiped. I am not sure which configs are written to the file.

Bug 3 - (possibly) I could only ever get the configs to work if I then went into the Wireless Access Point webconfig and changed the channel. Presumably this did a hostapd restart which needs to also be done when you change any wireless parameters in the IP settings screen.

Bug 4 - (feature enhancement) Allow both WEP and WPA configurations at the same time.
