wpa_supplicant will not connect to VAP: skip - SSID mismatch
Thu Aug 16 08:55:31 PDT 2012
First, let me say, I am using a proprietary driver, wl.ko from broadcom.
This is my first time trying to use that driver with only wpa_supplicant
in Gentoo. Previously, I had used wireless-tools.
Basically, it will not connect to my DD-WRT repeater/bridge. Near as I
can tell this is because of the error "skip - SSID mismatch". With
0.7.3, I could manually set the essid with iwconfig and it would connect
instantly. With wpa_supplicant-1, this does not work, but that's a side
note. I would like to not use iwconfig at all.
Do you guys know what is going on here? I've tested different versions
of supplicant with different driver combinations wext/nl80211, and I
have Fedora, Gentoo, and Android-x86 installed with wl.ko, so if you
would like some logs or something let me know. My device is 14e4:4315
