Description

opt1 in access point mode and also bridged to lan and after boot everything shows fine under status wireless but suppose u go to opt1 interface and make some changes there or even if u dont make changes and simply click save and then apply, then come back to status-> wireless then usually it consists of 2 lists, associated peers which keeps showing fine but the list on top, nearby access points just doesnt populate anymore untill pfsense is rebooted.

History

#1 Updated by Erik Fonnesbeck about 9 years ago

This occurs because the wireless status page uses the list scan command on ifconfig, which only gives some cached data. There is also a scan command that does a new scan. I would suggest leaving the behavior as-is, but having a rescan button that runs the other command, because the scan probably does stop wireless communication for a moment.
