I have a Linksys router that I've set to use
Mixed B/G Mode,
WPA2 Personal, and
AES, and I'm trying to replicate that setup on a single-board computer running
hostapd so that I can eliminate a box from a portable system that I'm building. (that computer has other functions as well, so it can't go away)
My Windows 7 laptop seems to be okay with the
hostapd-based network - in fact, I'm using it right now to post this - but the Lubuntu laptop that's going to be part of this portable system repeatedly asks for the password and never connects while my Android phone seems to hang after taking the password and doesn't connect either.
All three devices connect to the Linksys router without any problems, so I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with my
/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf. Here it is:
interface=wlan2 driver=nl80211 ssid=My-Hotspot hw_mode=g channel=8 macaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 ieee80211n=1 wpa=3 wpa_passphrase=AGoodPassw0rd wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK WPA-EAP WPA-PSK-SHA256 WPA-EAP-SHA256 wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP rsn_pairwise=CCMP
(ssid and passphrase changed for security, and comments removed for code readability)
So what am I doing wrong?
