Description

This happened when changing the wifi settings in Omega node from default (80211s 165 and 80211s_aplan 1) to 80211_adhoc 100 and 80211s_adhoc 60. The device ended up with the radios off and not accessible.

In-lab tests showed that same behaviour.

Maybe a "/etc/init.d/network restart" is needed?

[qmp-system] Restart the network instead of reloading it

In some corner cases, after changing the wireless settings,
the physical [radio] interfaces come up but the logical ones holding
them don't. By restarting the network, instead of reloading it, they
appear to do. It's inconvenient, because it breaks connections for a
while, but it's safer as the configuration is surely applied.
