Hi,

In our cisco 1240G AP, we enabled WPA2 instead of WPA (key_mgmt =
WPA-PSK, encryption = TKIP). Following is the wpa_supp.conf in our
terminal, but we couldnt able to Associate with AP

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=2
network={
ssid="DEVMGB9"
proto=RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP
auth_alg=OPEN
psk="secret1234"
}

Any suggestions?

Thanks
