I am trying to connect to wifi using wpa_supplicant. I use this config:


I also tried this config:

        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
        group=CCMP TKIP

I run this command:

wpa_supplicant  -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

And it appears to connect and auth:

rfkill: Cannot open RFKILL control device
ioctl[SIOCSIWAP]: Operation not permitted
wlan0: Trying to associate with e8:04:62:23:57:d0 (SSID='Guest' freq=2412 MHz)
wlan0: Associated with e8:04:62:23:57:d0
wlan0: WPA: Key negotiation completed with e8:04:62:23:57:d0 [PTK=CCMP GTK=CCMP]
wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to e8:04:62:23:57:d0 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=]

I try to get an address via dhcp and it appears to work from the messages, however there is no IP address assigned to wlan0 and I have no internet access as a result.

[root@switch /]# dhclient -v wlan0

Any ideas why the wlan0 does not get an address?

EDIT: I see syslog has this message but not sure what it means

rtw_wx_set_mlme, cmd=0, reason=3    


If I statically assign the leased address and add a default gateway manually it works. But only if I add the leased address.
