I tried to build for a Litebeam M5 ubiquity and...

I used Librerouter source and our network profile

and looks working well. We are still in test and we not deployed on
production hardware for the moment.

Also because we would like use this feature:
to have configuration based on mac.

So now we moved forward! yhuuu

Thanks! because we use the legacy libremesh and there the version of the
App was quite old. Now we are finding a lot of news in that side!!

Maybe we can add some doc here?

Maybe just expanding the point 5 in the paragraph below?
adding info on how apply network-profiles.. ?
