I have configured my accesspoint as WPA but it shows up as WEP secured on my laptop.

My configuration is:

interface=wlan0
driver=rtl871xdrv
ssid=AnotherTest
hw_mode=g
channel=6
macaddr_acl=0
auth_algs=1
ignore_broadcast_ssid=0
wpa=2
wpa_passphrase=testmore
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

What could be causing this?

Solved

I was starting hostapd in rc.local as:

sudo service hostapd start

I replaced this with:

sudo /etc/init.d/hostapd restart

It boths starts hostapd, but the replaced command starts it correctly as WPA2 accesspoint.

Try wpa=3

Why? Because there is this bug in the hostapd main-scripts that call WEP as a type of the WPA protocol.

I had the same problem and solved it by WPA=3

  • I have tried WPA=1, WPA=2 and WPA=3 now but it all results in WEP for some reason. Sep 22, 2015 at 10:22
