Status -> Wireless, nearby access point not showing
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.

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.
