V7.1.1 - RECALBOX WiFi intf fails to connect if WPA2 with SHA256 is set
after upgrading to V7.1.1 I had the following issue:
RECALBOX WiFi could not connect anymore to my router.
Router specs: TP-LINK WDR4300, firmware DD-WRT v3.0-r44715 std (11/03/20), two SSIDs (1x 2.4 Ghz 20 Mhz, 1x 5 Ghz 40 Mhz) same named, WPA2, AES
After trying out several options on the router: channel width, password with/without special characters etc. I finally found the issue: If the option WPA2 with SHA256 is selected, RECALBOX can not connect anymore to the router and the device is being shortly shown as "LEGACY" device and disappears after a few secs.
I expected at least a fallback and connection via "normal" WPA2 since it is also selected (without SHA256), but this is not the case, therefore I propose this issue.
Technical solution for a future release of RECALBOX client could be:
- Either enable a fallback connection to "normal" WPA2 (CCMP-128) if WPA2-SHA256 is selected and the connection fails or drops out, or better
- Support WPA2-SHA256 in the future
Not sure if this is a bug only in V7.1.1 or WPA2-SHA256 has never been supported so far. Workaround was to de-select WPA2 with SHA256 so that RECALBOX could connect to the router.
