Hello to all!
I have been using ESPhome firmware (1.15.0) with a multitude of devices that are based on either ESP32 or ESP8266 (e.g. WeMOS D1/D1 Mini). The wireless network is provided by Mikrotik Access Points, including the model RBcAPGi-5acD2nD and RouterBOARD cAP L-2nD ones (all running firmware 6.48).
If the Mikrotik APs are used individually, i.e. different SSIDs per AP, then all ESPHome devices connect flawlessly to the APs. However, when I enable CAPSMAN in order to optimize AP coverage and SSIDs, no ESPHome devices (ESP32 or ESP8266) can connect to the wireless network! No requests for DHCP are made and no ARPs are recorded within the APs. As soon as CAPSMAN is disabled, all devices can connect flawlessly again. This has been observed with other ESP32/ESP8266 that do NOT run the ESPHome firmware but an alternative, such as Tasmota or Tuya.
Please note that other devices, such as mobile phones (both Android/Samsung and iOS/Iphones) can connect with no errors to WLAN when CAPSMAN is enabled, the issue is observed only with ESP32/ESP8266 devices.
Has anyone deployed Mikrotik CAPSMAN with ESP32-ESP8266 devices?
