Installed your RPi3 image (thanks!) and did a lot of other stuff with it using hardwired network before trying the WiFi. Now ready to use WiFi but don’t see your AP’s SSID.
When I do ‘pifi status’ (after reboot), it says:
Network Manager reports AP mode support on wlan0
Device is not activated.
Have I deactivated WiFi somehow by using wired connection?
How do I reactivate it? (Please, not reloading the image?)
Support resources for the RPi all seem to assume Raspbian or other software, and don’t seem helpful for this instance.
‘ifconfig -a’ shows a wlan0 interface (b8:27:eb:10:28:17), but ‘ifconfig’ does not.

On further investigation, ‘sudo ifconfig wlan0 up’ responded with:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill
