Simple Network Setup fixed

This affects all Woof-built puppies, since the internationalization effort.

The script /usr/local/Simple_Network_Setup/sns has a syntax error introduced when it was internationalized. Causes a crash.

I didn't realise this, as it is not encountered for wireless connection, only for wired ethernet.

Anyway, fixed. You can download the fixed script:

Note, we have to expect this. It was a mammoth effort internationalizing all of the scripts, and the occasional typo is bound to happen.
