#21421 new defect

WPA encryption not working on multiple networks

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:



I am configuring an OpenWRT box (HG556a) as a wifi router.

WAN <------------WIFI----------->OpenWRT<------------LAN---------> Wireless Device

This is pretty straight forward and works OK.
The WAN wlan is secured with WPA2.

However I also want to use multicast traffic (IPTV) and here is where the issues start.

If I setup the LAN wlan with WPA (of any kind 1/2) the multicast traffic doesn't work, neither an arping from the WAN. But if I setup the LAN wlan with WEP or No Encrytion everything works properly.

I was able to reproduce this issue with Barrier Breaker, Chaos Calmer and Trunk versions with the drivers rt2800-pci (for the included WLAN interface on the device) and zd1211rw for a USB dongle.

So you seem to have the revision c with the ralink chipset. This requires closed source software to run. Could you provide logfiles with two ath9k based devices and debugging turned on?
