Title: Wireless Bridge: WPA: EAPOL-Key timeout
Post by: rvalle on September 08, 2016, 05:42:50 pm

I am new to OPNSense, in fact, I am trying to migrate our network from PFSense.

For user access devices we have been using VLAN bridged with WIFI Access point, which we find convenient in this case.

So I am creating a bridge for an VLAN and WIFI access point interfaces. Only the Bridge interface has an IP, and rungs DHCP server, etc.

It seems to be working fine for some devices, however, with some others I get: WPA: EAPOL-Key timeout

I have been searching and reading old threads about this issue in other projects:

Some threads suggested testing without WPA, which I did, and then the bridge seems to work on all devices.

Other threads suggest that the client drivers might be incomplete/outdated, but this very same configuration is working just fine with the PFSense router, which I think is a related project.

My problem is that I dont know how to dig deeper here. What to debug or try.

Any idea what could be going wrong?

I had the same problem and it turned out, that choosing the TKIP encoding (instead of "Both" or the recommended "AES") helped to get rid of this problem:
