I still don't understand which version you are comparing to. Can't you
just go to the control panel and check?

What is wpa.sh and why do you have to use it? You do know that the OS
supports WPA out-of-the-box (although unreliable with some APs),
Other questions that it would be useful to know the answer to:

Did you wait sufficiently long enough (perhaps as long as 5 minutes)
for the XO to check mesh channels for school servers before consulting
the history of infrastructure networks?

Is the AP is marked as a favourite when it appears on the network
view? It should have a star against the circular icon.
