WPA security question

Sat Aug 16, 2008 5:33 pm

I have just implemented WPA on our MIkroTik network. Everything went great except for one hotspot I have connected as a client of our main AP. The hotspot is setup as a point to point on one radio card and then an AP on the other wireless card. The users are setup as username and password clients. I tried to set WPA on only the AP radio, it seems to take presidence on both cards which is causing a problem. I had to disable WPA on our network until I come up with a solution to this problem. Is there a way I can set WPA on the Point to Point and not the AP of the client radio? Thanks for any suggestions

Make sure that configuration is matching on both ends.

Sergejs, thank you for your reply. Yes everything is the same on the client end and the Access Point. I have altered the default setting in security profiles. I have dynamic keys enabled, WPA PSK, WPA2 PSK are enabled, unicast is set to TKIP and group is set to TKIP, and I have the same security phrase on all clients and Access Points. Do you see any problems with this config?

You should try creating a Virtual AP.
On that interface, pick the security profile you need, and connect with the point to point link to that interface (obviously, you'll need to use a different SSID)
