I have this problem: I live in a university dorm room with an ethernet port because the campus wifi doesn't reach. So, together with the network administrator that was on board with this, I used an openWRT router to create an access point inside my room. It worked for a couple of months until the power went out and now I can't reconnect with the exact same configuration. This is my wpa_supplicant file:

        pairwise=CCMP TKIP

And what I get is this:

Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
eth0.1: Associated with 01:80:c2:00:00:03
WMM AC: Missing IEs
eth0.1: CTRL-EVENT-EAP-STARTED EAP authentication started

eth0.1: CTRL-EVENT-EAP-FAILURE EAP authentication failed

Any idea on how can I get this working again? Again, I know for a fact that this configuration worked before and nothing has changed on the network.

  • It seems to be missing anonymous_identity="myUniEmail" – Rui F Ribeiro Dec 15 '19 at 18:46
  • It should also be, I think, password=hash:yyyy where yyyy is echo myUniPassword | tr -d '\n' | iconv -t utf16le | openssl md4 – Rui F Ribeiro Dec 15 '19 at 18:52
  • @RuiFRibeiro I repeat, I haven't done anything like that before and it worked just fine. Also, what do you mean by your first post? – AndreaCRD Dec 15 '19 at 18:52
  • Modifications to the wpa_supplicant file. Test them out. – Rui F Ribeiro Dec 15 '19 at 18:53
  • vi or nano /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and restarting it. I am mobile right now, won't be able to help further. – Rui F Ribeiro Dec 15 '19 at 18:56
