I'm trying to connect ubiquity NanoStation M2 as Station/Router mode to a hotspot that I believe has WPA/AES security and EAP-PEAP for auth. I have tested the username and password from my laptop and it works fine. Now I'm trying to connect to the same hotspot from around 700 meters away using my Nanostation M2. However here's the error that I got:

  • This would appear to be the key point you need to investigate, "CTRL-EVENT-EAP-FAILURE EAP authentication failed." Not having access to any of the authentication process from the device or your RADIUS server makes it impossible to provide an answer, we would just be guessing (wrong password, cert issue, etc)? – YLearn Feb 9 '15 at 19:39
  • I See. what about this, sometimes it'll show this first: Oct 2 04:50:30 wpa-supplicant: CTRL-EVENT-EAP-FAILURE EAP authentication failed Oct 2 04:50:31 wpa-supplicant: CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys Oct 2 04:50:31 wireless: ath0 Received deauth from f4:ea:67:12:c6:75. Reason: Incorrect frame type or subtype received from unassociated station (7). Oct 2 04:50:31 wireless: ath0 New Access Point/Cell address:Not-Associated The incorrect frame type. Does it ring any bells or indicates anything? thanks :) – joeyy27 Feb 10 '15 at 3:44
  • I wouldn't waste time on anything after the EAP auth failure. If the auth fails, then any traffic afterwards will be invalid until it attempts to reconnect. – YLearn Feb 10 '15 at 7:33
