[regression]AP with hostapd 0.7.3 can't receive packets beyond authentication (2.6.36-, rt73usb)
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi everyone,I noticed a bug (details later) in Linus' git tree, which wasn't there in 188.8.131.52. So I went on to bisect the bug. 12 compiles and reboots later, I could narrow it down to this commit:
# bad: [05318bc905467237d4aa68a701f6e92a2b332218] Merge branch 'master' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linville/wireless-next-2.6
Unfortunately, I couldn't further bisect down wireless-next, because all three commits I picked were unworkable (bringing down an interface caused the kernel to oops, which made my test case impossible).
The test case is as follows: I have eth0 and wlan0 (the interface to an rt37usb device) in a bridge lan0. I have a properly configured hostapd. When I try to connect with a client to my hostapd AP, I can successfully authenticate, but all further packets don't reach the interface of the AP.
However, I can see broadcast packets *from* the AP on my client, but not the other way round (DHCP requests from client to AP). To make sure the bug was not specific to broadcast packets, I manually set an IP on my client and tried to ping the AP, but those packets didn't come through, either.
Right now I'm a bit clueless on how to get to the root of this bug, so any help is appreciated.
