ESP wifi device lost when network not availble
#1
OP 1.0.0 on an Pi3 B

With an ESP8266 running easyesp connected to the RPi AP and OP sharing an access point using just the internal wifi, I've noticed that when the network supplying web access gets turned off then the ESP gets disconnected as well, reboot the ESP and it connects again. 
I've gone back to using a separate USB wifi dongle on the Pi which seems OK.

Without touching anything, no issues on my pi 3 model B with OP 1.0.0, internal wifi, ESP connected for successive days, when looking in the ESP logs, never a connection faillure.

My ESP8266 unit = AI-Thinker ESP-01 with 1MB memory with following binary: ESP_Easy_mega-20180403_normal_ESP8266_1024
If needed, I could report current uptime with 0 connection faillures.

But what do you disable and for what reason for this issue to occur?

The Pi shares web access from a mobile phone access point, if the phone goes out of range so no access point to share then the ESP stops talking to the OP access point and needs a reboot to get it talking again. Not really a problem for me as I just went back to using a separate USB/Wifi dongle which works fine but seems like a bug.
