an update here:

Using wpa_suplicant in one target device in station mode,
and hostapd in another target device in AP bridging mode,
they can connect and ping each other. So i have done WPA-PSK in Bridging
mode, i guess.

however, other types of wlan adapter (eg. those in centrino notebook) can't
connect to hostapd device in WPA-PSK mode. May i know does anyone try the
hostapd WPA-PSK connection with a centrino notebook succeesfully??

Many Thanks.

victor

after i disable bridging in AP, i can use wpa_supplicant to connect to
hostapd, by WPA-PSK.

however, when i enable bridging in AP, i can never use wpa_supplicant to
connect to hostapd, i have added
bridge=br0
to hostapd.conf. But it won't work no matter how hard i tried.

I see the mailing list, some people have successfully run WPA-PSK on a
bridge, am i missing some extra settings here?


many thanks.

victor

Hi again
not sure but try
"wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP" or "wpa_pairwise=TKIP TKIP"
for wpa2 or wpa
in both wpa.conf and hostapd.conf

4 days..try 4 weeks ;)) like me
Both hostapd wpa_supp. and madwifi
is highly powerfull software, they are working
also together but the faktor 11 risk is big
with all those options.
faktor 11 = userscreewups ;) i´m good for those
