hAPac2 wifi issue

Tue Dec 04, 2018 10:48 pm

On the hAPac2 hotspot is disable and using default firewall .... firmware 6.43.7

Logs are filling up [in the hundreds one every 20 seconds] with the following:
10:A2:DE:EF:5D:88@wlan1: connected, signal strength -45
10:A2:DE:Ef:5D:88@wlan1: disconnected, unicast key exchange timeout
Question: how to prevent logs from filling up with this login attemp from an unknown source?

Is your SSID unique?
Or do you use something common as "Internet" or "wifi"? Then many devices will try to connect when they know this SSID.

The hAPac2 is located at a Client site. The SSID being utilized is unique. In searching the forum I observed that lots of people are complaining about the same issue with other MikroTik wireless models and a few suggestions. I will try some of the suggestions and hope that some of those will fix the problem.

This usually means the client is using the wrong WPA2 key.

All known clients have no problem connecting or staying connected ...

If you're only bothered by the log entry you can turn off "info" category if you don't want to see this.

Re: hAPac2 wifi issue  [SOLVED]

OK I solved the issue by adding the MAC Addy to the Wireless ACL to disallow further communications from the UNKNOWN Source -- this effectively stopped the log entries.

FYI, the wireless debug was a big help in coming to this resolution.
