After a long running period ( ~30 days )
and this strange log :
hostapd: wlan0_0: EAPOL-4WAY-HS-COMPLETED 54:af:97:a9:xxxxxx

The hostapd stop forwarding traffic to wlan0_0

( wifi auth was done but no traffic )

*I am not aware of any client that would need EAPOL on my network*

# /usr/sbin/hostapd -v

(did also check but nothing certain)


Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do
