Hi all and Jouni,
We have a tri-band 6G AP product running hostapd with sae_pwe as 2.
We noticed Android Pixel6 was failed to make successful connection due
to warning "SAE: 0c:c4:13:14:16:93 indicates support for SAE H2E, but
did not use it."
>From sniffer capture, Pixel6 has status code 0 in AUTH COMMIT message,
H2E bit set in (Re)Assoc Req and hostapd returned
WLAN_STATUS_UNSPECIFIED_FAILURE in (Re)Assoc Resp.
Can we get more context on why hostapd instrument the check below?
Is there any spec stating the requirement below?
