#4679 closed defect (worksforme)

apsta mode broken

Reported by: openwrt@… Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Kamikaze 8.09.1
Component: packages Version: Kamikaze 8.09
Keywords: apsta Cc:


System: 8.09

Hardware: WRT54GL

Setting: Two wifi interfaces for wl0, one in client mode with network wan (pppoe for wl0), one ap with network lan (bridging eth0.0 eth0.1 wl0).

Everything works fine, the client mode connection works, ap signal can be found by client devices, but if an associated device tries to authenticate, syslog throws "user.warn kernel: wl0.1: received packet with own address as source address", ap doesn't respond and authentication times out.

System: 8.09, brcm-2.4

Hardware: WHR-HP-G54

I can confirm this bug on a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 with brcm-2.4 image. It worked flawlessly with 7.09, but with same configuration, it doesn't work on 8.09. While the sta-configuration works and the router can connect to the other access point, the ap-configuration doesn't work. The SSID is visible, but no clients can cannot.

Both my links use WPA by the way. Turning AP encryption off, it works (since there's no authentication to time out then).

It's definitely WPA related. Switching the AP's encryption off or WEP, not only fixes the connection issue, but also the "own address as source" message doesn't show up in the log anymore. Haven't had time to test whether doing the same thing with the sta connection has the same effect, but I would guess so. Is there a new WPA component in 8.09 not being able to handle two connections? - or at least in apsta mode.

The same setup worked in 7.09 for me too.

Can you guys attach your /etc/config/wireless files to help debug this?

comment:7 Changed 8 years ago by openwrt@…

My current one (working):

config 'wifi-device' 'wl0'
        option 'type' 'broadcom'
        option 'channel' '5'
        option 'disabled' '0'

config 'wifi-iface'
        option 'device' 'wl0'
        option 'ssid' 'Home_ShakaWeb'
        option 'network' 'lan'
        option 'mode' 'ap'
        option 'encryption' 'wep'
        option 'key' 'wontgetme'

config 'wifi-iface'
        option 'device' 'wl0'
        option 'network' 'wan'
        option 'mode' 'sta'
        option 'ssid' 'DSL_ShakaWeb'
        option 'key' 'metoo'
        option 'encryption' 'psk'

Switching encryption to wpa, it's broken.

Works for me with r16260

I can confirm that. :-)

Encryption doesn't work correctly in kamikaze 8.09.1 with any type of encryption (wep, psk, psk2). Cannot connect to the ap. Only encryption 'none' is working which is definitely not safe.
