Wireless key rollback to default

Faced a problem. After making changes, namely the password for the network in Luci and their application, the system still rolls back to the parameters from

config wifi-device 'radio0'
	option type 'mac80211'
	option path 'platform/soc/3f300000.mmcnr/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:0001/mmc1:0001:1'
	option cell_density '0'
	option hwmode '11g'
	option channel 'auto'

config wifi-iface 'default_radio0'
	option device 'radio0'
	option network 'lan'
	option mode 'ap'
	option ssid '******'
	option key '*******'
	option wpa_disable_eapol_key_retries '1'
	option encryption 'psk-mixed'
	option isolate '1'

LuCI will usually roll back if it encounters an error. You can replace the key manually in /etc/config/network. Do make sure you have a wired connection to the router though, in case your wireless breaks when you try to restart it.

I need the user to be able to change the password on their own

Do you change the password while being collected via wireless? If so you need to reconnect to the device using the new password within 90s of changing the key or choose Apply unchecked.
