No WPA2 in Access Point mode WiFi on OPi3 (only WPA).

Hi there,

I have configured (successfully with NetworkManager GUI, or TUI, it was quite ago, can see it in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ ) my OPi3 as an WiFi AP.

(Needed this as sharing "normal" LAN traffic with video surveillance on same WiFi channel was a disaster).

It works, but in "scan" on OpenWRT routers this WIFi shows only as WPA not WPA2 protected.

 

Armbian Buster 21.02.3.

 

Why? How to correct this?

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Your issue report is not a valid bug report per the Armbian bug reporting instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs).  With limited resources the Armbian project is only able to spend time on issues where all the requested information has been provided and for only the boards/images/software that are supported.  Your report is invalid for one or more of the following reasons (non-exhaustive list):

 

  • it is for an unsupported board or image (CSC/EOS/WIP/edge)
  • it is for software that is not supported (such as userspace modules installed on top of the core operating system)
  • it has been logged in the wrong forum (for example requests for help that are not actual bug reports)
  • it lacks requested data (armbianmonitor output)
  • it could have been easily solved by a quick search and/or reading documentation

 

Please review what you have submitted and the bug logging instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs) and either add the required information or open a new topic in the correct forum (such as Common issues / peer to peer technical support or General chit chat)

Ok, armbianmonitor -u:

root@orangepi3:/mnt/disk2/var/motion# armbianmonitor -u
System diagnosis information will now be uploaded to gzip: /var/log/armbian-hardware-monitor.log.1.gz: No such file or directory

Please post the URL in the forum where you've been asked for.

 

I (personally) find it a bug: have configured AP using standard OS tools, it shows "WPA2" in TUI. Now need someone with deeper knowledge.

 

Searched forum for "no WPA2" phrase, no relevant results.

Should I correct anything else?

  • Werner changed the title to No WPA2 in Access Point mode WiFi on OPi3 (only WPA).

Found one more problem: there is no routing from LAN to WiFi AP. (IPv4).

I can access device (Android phone) from OPi3, but if on laptop (LAN connection) I set OPi3 as GW for this WiFi network it does not work. (Android does not respond to ping, I know this), but trying to get WWW from "IP webcam" on this phone does not work. It WORKS from OPi3!

 

Checked iptables, all chains are "ACCEPT" to this is not the problem.

What to check next?
