    Exclamation Diablo WiFi and WPA / WPA2 Problems + Solution

    Hi,

    I just want to share my findings after a few hours of debugging WPA / WPA2 WLAN encryption as many other people seem to have troubles as well!!

    1.) WPA/WPA2 config method has changed in version 1.77, there is no separate config / menu entry for WAP and WPA2, this has not been updated in CAS studio (yet), also LANG files have not been changed (new files attached - English and German - copy to \MENU\LANG - its not possible to set key via CI Menu), best way to configure WPA is config.xml file directly, see below.

    2.) If you want to pair Diablo Wifi with a Cisco AP (c1100 in my case) you will encounter problems as soon as you turn on WPA/WPA2. Reason is a timeout during WAP Key handshake.
    Cisco Debug commands (needs level 15):
    debug dot11 aaa manager all
    debug dot11 aaa dispatcher
    term mon


    Now you will see the following during authentication:
    //SNIP
    dot11_mgr_sm_hs_callback: [1] Handshake msg to 0019.2896.2613, timer set: timeout 100 ms
    dot11_mgr_sm_run_machine: Executing Action(WPAV2_PTK_MSG2_WAIT,TIMEOUT) for 0019.2896.2613
    //SNIP


    due to the time-out the authentication will finaly fail:
    //SNIP
    dot11_mgr_sm_handshake_fail: Handshake failure for 0019.2896.2613
    dot11_aaa_send_response: wlccp_ap_auth_method_done 50, method_done 8
    dot11_aaa_send_response: Sending response: 0 for: 0019.2896.2613
    %DOT11-7-AUTH_FAILED: Station 0019.2896.2613 Authentication failed
    //SNIP


    To anyway make the WPA/WPA2 working time-out needs to be set to a higher value (in global config mode):
    dot11 wpa handshake timeout 500

    Then you should get something like that
    //SNIP
    Aug 2 21:19:51.306: dot11_mgr_sm_hs_callback: [3] Handshake msg to 0019.2896.2613, timer set: timeout 500 ms
    Aug 2 21:19:51.335: dot11_mgr_sm_parse_client_pak: Received EAPOL packet from 0019.2896.2613
    //SNIP


    //SNIP
    Aug 2 21:19:51.379: wpav2 Handshake passed
    Aug 2 21:19:51.380: dot11_mgr_sm_handshake_pass: Handshake pass for 0019.2896.2613
    Aug 2 21:19:51.380: dot11_aaa_send_response: wlccp_ap_auth_method_done 50, method_done 8
    Aug 2 21:19:51.380: dot11_aaa_send_response: Sending response: 2 for: 0019.2896.2613
    Aug 2 21:19:51.380: %DOT11-6-ASSOC: Interface Dot11Radio0, Station 0019.2896.2613 Associated KEY_MGMT[WPAv2 PSK]
    Aug 2 21:19:51.380: dot11_aaa_client_associate: Associated 0019.2896.2613
    //SNIP

    Re: Diablo WiFi and WPA / WPA2 Problems + Solution

    I know the post is 2 years old, just wanna thank the person who wrote it, very helpfull indeed. That link was exactly what I was looking for cause I could not change the WPA2 password in my Diablo wifi. Now that I changed the WPA/WPA2 cleartext encryption KEY with your link it works like a charm. Did it via FTP by editing my config file in diablo wifi's /CONFIG/ folder. Just posting it here in case someone ever gets the same problem.
