Feedback so far has been good on the dashboard, it is ready to merge.
I expect it will receive more wide testing once it's in the tree.

As a future evolution, it could perhaps replace the current "status" page.

This needs more discussion and feedback.

There is one interesting question (on the github pull request): should the
quick setup configure the same SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, or two
different SSID?

I remember that some clients had trouble switching between channels if the
same SSID is used, which is why I pushed for two different SSID.  Does
anybody has current experience with this?

As always, keep in mind that this should match the common needs of casual
users: advanced users can always go to the current Wireless menu.
