#9190 closed defect (wontfix)

Wpa supplicant and WPA-none

Reported by: Davide Guerri <davide.guerri@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: wpa-none wpa-supplicant hostapd Cc:


Since r26370, i can't get wpa-none work in ad-hoc mode.

The only way to get it working is to revert the hostapd package to r25544 or to download backfire-rc4 hostapd package.

I'm using the following wpa_supplicant configuration with madwifi (trunk)

Hmm, I'm having the same problem here. I tried it with the backfire branch (unfortunately can't compile the x86 trunk image at the moment, there seems to be another bug...) but I also can't get any traffic through. My wpa_supplicant.conf looks pretty much the same (generated by the patch for the uci configs from here:

However, also either resetting the hostapd package to r25544 or reverting commit r26370 did not help.

Hmm, so you definitely had a working WPA-None configuration working lately?

I was able to get WPA-NONE to work under ad-hoc mode for ath9k on Backfire r25206, if that helps narrow down when the problem was introduced.

wpa-none will not be fully supported. you should use wpa2-psk with ath5k/ath9k.
