Okay. I've looked through it. One device is my SqueezeBox UE Radio (Downgrade to SqueezeBox Firmware). It can't connect, because it says, WPA-EAP / WPA2-EAP is not supported, only WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK.
When I remove from wpa_key_mgmt= EAP and leave only PSK, it works immediately. But it's not a general problem. I've tried my Windows 8 notebook. This one works with WPA2-PSK and WPA2-EAP fine.

wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256 (works fine)
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256 WPA-EAP WPA-EAP-SHA256 (works fine, but not with SqeezeBox)

So this problem is only to a specific device. Can I fix this somehow? I don't want to disable WPA-EAP because of one device :(
