回复： Why EAPOL packet are sended but never received.

The version of wpa_supplicant is wpa_supplicant-0.6.3, and the network card is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC,and diver is 8319too or 8319cp as the default installation by linux system.
And setting the interface manually into promiscuous mode still can't help.When I use Wireshark(install on the same PC with wpa_supplicant) to capture the packet,there are only EAPOL-start packets(sent by wpa_supplicant).
This is really strange,and thanks for your help.

Which version of wpa_supplicant are you using? Which network card and
driver are you using?
The EAPOL frame from the wired authenticator would be a multicast packet
and wpa_supplicant subscribes for that multicast group. It sounds like
something fails to deliver the frame to wpa_supplicant in this
particular case. Could you please test whether setting the interface
manually into promiscuous mode ("ifconfig eth0 promisc") would help? It
would also be interesting to see whether a packet sniffer (e.g.,
Wireshark or tcpdump) seems the EAPOL frame on the client.
