View Full Version : [kubuntu] wpa vs wpa2 - dhcp

April 29th, 2009, 08:13 AM
I changed the encryption of my wireless connection from WPA to WPA2. Then made change to my wpa_supplicant.conf by updating proto to RSN. Once I made this change, after boot up I am associated with the AP but I am getting dhcp address from it. But once i do

sudo dhclient eth1

I gets the IP address. (Sometimes I had to kill wpa_supplicant and start it again)

So i reverted back to WPA, then everything works fine.

Whats it with WPA2 and DHCP?
