Thanks Jouni for your response.

Could you advise why I could be getting Leap Option at my Client end when I
use the authenticator as hostapd and I dont get the option with the same
client when I use a different authenticator(product DIR-655 - i dont know
internally which application acts like the authenticator)

Is there a way to check this and make sure the Clients connected to my AP in
which hostapd is the authenticator does not get LEAP option at the client
end ( else that will confuse them as Actually as u mentioned LEAP option
wont be present)

Looking forward for your reply.

Thanks in advance!
