I am trying to connect my Android 12 phone to wifi hotspot initiated on Ubuntu 22.04. However the wifi hotspot is not visible in the list of available networks when set on WPA security. When I switch to open security, it is visible and works well. However I cannot leave it on open security. I tried the solutions given in the other post related to older Ubuntu versions as well as new one like the ones in ubuntu 18.04 hotspot not visible I have tried below options:
- reconfigured the whole setup for wifi after deleting it once.
- Tried connecting to it manually by setting up the wifi connection through ssid on my phone
- restarting the devices
- To check if wifi is functioning,I tried connecting one of my older phones with Android 6 to it and it detected the hotspot and connected easily. But the wifi is not visible on my new android phone with OS version Android 12.
- I also tried using WEP security protocol, but when I restart hotspot it automatically changes to WPA security.
The only way things work are when I set an open connection with no passcode. But since I live in a busy area, I cannot leave it open. Is this a bug in Ubuntu 22.04? Please help in finding out a solution to this problem.
Thanks in advance.
