Hello everyone,

I have a Linux box with hostapd, I have used it since 2 weeks, but
today my client can't connect.
Here is my config:

interface=wlan0
driver=nl80211
logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=0
logger_stdout=-1
logger_stdout_level=0
dump_file=/tmp/hostapd.dump
ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
ctrl_interface_group=0
ssid=HSHNET
auth_algs=3
eapol_key_index_workaround=0
eap_server=0
wpa=3
wpa_psk_file=/etc/hostapd/wpa_psk
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
channel=9
hw_mode=g
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
wme_enabled=0

/etc/hostapd/wpa_psk:
00:00:00:00:00:00 MYPASS

hostapd -ddd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf gives these lines:

any my client (which is a Nokia phone, uses hungarian language) said
(in free translation):
Can't connect to Ap: invalid WPA key.

But (without I touched client config) sometimes it canbe connected -
then when I disconnect the client,
SSID isn't visible until I restart hostapd. I can't reproduce exactly
this effect...


Thank you for your help:
