2.9 RC1 - WPA-PSK

Thu May 12, 2005 12:44 am

Does anyone succeed in getting WPA-PSK work with 2.9 RC1?

I tried several Clients.

- Windows XP SP1
- Windows XP SP2
- Linksys Wrt54G running openWrt

Every Client is trying to connect to the WPA-Running MikrotikOS-Machine but does not get any connection. MikrotikOS-Logfile shows permanent connects and disconnects from my clients.

Yes.

I am using WPA-PSK/TKIP succesfully with Windows XP, though I am
not using Windows' own WPA support but instead
Intel ProSet Wireless (on Centrino Notebooks with integrated Intel-based WLAN cards)
or the Odyssey Client from Funk Software on notebooks with Orinocco PCMCIA cards.

Are you trying to use TKIP or AES encryption?

I tried it several times with TKIP and several times with AES. But I did not try it with an commercial Client like Odyssey Client. Is it possible for you, to test WPA with the Windows-XP Built-In Client?

I´ll try RC2 amd Odyssey this evening on my XP-Boxes and WPA-Supplicant on my OpenWRT-Box.

I´ll report my results ASAP.

Yesterday, I tried following:
- WPA-PSK between 2.9 RC2 and OpenWRT+WPA-Supplicant
- WPA-PSK between 2.9 RC2 and Odysse-WPA on Windows XP.

Both worked fine with TKIP and with AES.

Yet, integrated WPA-Client of Windows XP does not work with 2.9 RC2. But this does not really matter :)

"does not matter" ...... ? :(

What if people want to use it ?
Would be nice to see this fixed, many people use in-built WinXP features. :)

Just to revive an old topic, here's an update on WPA-PSK. It turned out that despite
my former statement that I got a working WPA-PSK/TKIP connection, I was wrong.
After some more intesive testing I found out that it almost always worked for a few minutes,
but then major dropouts and disconnects came up and the client would not manage to
reassociate to the AP.
This became even more visible with the new wireless-test package for 2.9rc7.
With the new package the WPA connection did not even start to come up successfully.
I took that as an opportunity to revisit this issue and I am happy let you know that
MT support confirmed and fixed a WPA bug. I now received a special version of
the 2.9rc7 wireless-test package that finally is stable with WPA-PSK, so the fix will
hopefully soon be available in the next mainline releases.

Oooh, i am using this feature (TKIP with Intel PROset) with my home gateway. Could you share a copy of that wireless package? Does anyone know the release date for a new RC version?

Sure hope they get UPnP fixed this time.
