Description

Hi,

Clients are not able to connect to repeated network - timeout during auth - exemplary log from macbook:

10-03-27 22:06:37 SystemUIServer[93] Error joining repeated_network: timeout connecting (-6 timeout connecting)

10-03-27 22:08:48 kernel Auth result for: 02:1f:c6:XX:XX:XX Auth timed out

10-03-27 22:08:53 kernel Auth result for: 02:1f:c6:XX:XX:XX Auth timed out

10-03-27 22:08:53 airportd[2179] Error: Apple80211Associate() failed -6

Few facts:

  • Using Wireless Bridge Client + Repeater mode on Asus wl500g Premium (v1) Kamikaze 8.09.2 (brcm-2.4) - configuration can be generated by Gargoyle
  • New repeated_network is shown correctly on wifi list
  • Configuration works If clients are connected via ethernet cable
  • Alternative and similar mode: Client + AP works goods, Asus receives signal from master router and repeates it, but routers are in separete subnets, packages are double routed, there are 2 dhcp servers...
