WLAN based issues


(Mark Edworthy) #1

In the last couple of days I have had to restore a full backup of nethserver on my server (due to HDD failure).

As stated in a earlier post, I am using Wireless NIC to connect to a router / the Internet.

After the restoration on a new HDD, the WLAN connection was working, then I attempted a upgrade of this installation and afterwards the NIC failed to connect to the WLAN / router.

As far as I can see the ifup-wlan0 and wpa_supplicant.conf file has not been altered due to the upgrade -

The wpa_supplicant.conf contains the following:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
network={
ssid="ssid-name"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk=“ssid-password”
}

and the ifcfg-wlan0 contains:

DEVICE=wlan0
IPV6INIT=no
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
HWADDR="MAC-Address"
IPADDR=192.168.0.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NM_CONTOLLED=no
ONBOOT=yes
ESSID="ssid-name"
WPA=yes
USERCTRL=no
MODE=managed

Now, after restarting the wpa_supplicant service, I get the following error:

Starting wpa_supplicant: /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, -iwlan0, ieee80211 phy0: rt2800usb_fill_rxdone: Error - Bad frame size 13634, forcing to 0

ieee80211 phy0: rt2x00lib_rxdone: Error - Wrong frame size 0 max 3840

I can ping the local NIC (192.168.0.2) but not the router (192.168.0.1)

Like I stated above, before the upgrade this NIC was working OK, after the upgrade this NIC fails to connect to the router.

try to modify the Frame size on your wireless router to frame size 3840 and then see if the negotiation goes ok.
