Description David Anderson 2006-04-25 07:06:45 EDT
Description of problem: Running dhclient on my Atheros network card causes the previously successful WPA authentication to fail. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.3-26 (kmod-madwifi-0.0.0.20060317-220.127.116.11_1.2096_FC5, wpa_supplicant-0.4.8-7.fc5) How reproducible: Every time. (Tried about 5 times. As soon as I stopped using dhclient and instead configured manually, everything worked). Access point is a LinkSys WAP54G. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Insert Atheros-based wireless card 2. service wpa_supplicant start (configured with key_mgmt=WPA-PSK, proto=WPA) 3. Do "/sbin/iwconfig ath0 essid MYSSID" 4. Wait for "/sbin/iwconfig ath0" to demonstrate that association has been successful. 5. Run "dhclient ath0". Actual results: dhclient obtains an IP address, updates the interface, and then immediately wpa_supplicant gets authentication failed and remains in that state. (This causes dhclient to quit, too). However, if you don't use dhclient (i.e. configure the interface manually with "ifconfig" and "route" and edit /etc/resolv.conf manually), then the interface continues working fine. (I am currently entering this bug via the interface in question, having configured it manually). I used this same setup with this same access point on Fedora Core 4 (fully updated) about 2 months ago, and there were no problems. Expected results: Everything works happily. Additional info: My system is fully updated.
