I understand that auth_algs should be either 1(open), 2(shared) or 3(both) abd never 0. Try it out.

hi All,
        we are getting the problem in authentication process (802.1x) using 
windows xp suppicant, hostapd authenticator & radius server.

First we used hostapd in user space & having configuration in hostapd.conf
(ieee_802_1x=1, auth_algos=0, macaddr-
auth_server_shared_secret="hello" etc)

we were able to get authentication frame from both the sides but  there was  
no association frme form either side.

what can be the problem? pls reply if u have any suggestion.

Then we tried to use hostapd in kernel driver. Then we were able to get even 
association frame but no access to internet.
DMESG says:-
wlan: data dropped from unauthorised port(IEE 802.1x): ethertype=0x0806.
pls reply if possible.

say ...cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeze................. :-)
