Comment 1 Clodoaldo Pinto Neto 2013-08-02 12:44:00 EDT
The log line where the denial occurs:

Aug  2 13:06:02 cl kernel: [16687.139597] wlo1: ::MAC:: denied association (code=17)
Comment 2 Stanislaw Gruszka 2013-08-06 04:22:17 EDT
Please add -ddd option to OTHER_ARGS in /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant file. It should looks like showed below:

OTHER_ARGS="-u -f -ddd /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid

Then restart machine, reproduce problem and attach /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log file here.
Comment 3 Clodoaldo Pinto Neto 2013-08-06 08:01:50 EDT
Just a correction if anyone is trying to reproduce. The -ddd argument must be placed before the -f argument:

OTHER_ARGS="-u -ddd -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid"

The error now in messages is another. Indeed I tried sometimes and the error varies at each try.

Is it necessary to restart the machine or just restarting the service is enough?

systemctl restart wpa_supplicant.service

I restarted the machine.

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 19 kernel bugs.

Fedora 19 has now been rebased to 3.11.1-200.fc19.  Please test this kernel update and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
