I have done a bit more and the Dot11Radio has come up but I still can't see it when I look for wireless networks?

Is the CLI the best way to configure wireless? Are there any troubleshooting commands I can use..

I have resolved my issue with a much simpler config - listed below - still trying to work out what was missing with the above.
