i got two TP-Link WR-1043ND.
I flash it with DD-WRT V24 pre SP2 Build 14896.
Then with telnet mtd -r erase nvram.
Everything was working well.
Then I configured the tl-wr1043nd to work with radius server in setting /wlan/wlan-Sevurity for security-modus "WPA2 Enterprise"
with correct radius server port ip
with correct radius auth shared secret.
Then i do a save setting and apply setting immidiately.
Radius server setup with same security parameter.
The import on my Windows 7 laptop tof the ca.der in was ok. After connection to the wlan-network the radius server accepted my logon and working was ok.
But now the problem:
After power off/on of the tl-wr1043nd the connection to the wlan was going to unsave mode (no wpa2-enterprise mode).
That means, the tl-wr1043nd save-setting mode is not working ok.
I tried this very often.
More infomation: 11:25
after power off/on there is no ath0_hostap.conf in /tmp.
Only when i do a apply setting the atho_hostap.conf is visible and the save mode (wpa2-enterprise mode) is running.!!
More information: 11:44
after power off/onthere is no file ath0_hostap.pid in /tmp/var/run
that means there is no deamon "hostapd" running.
it seems that the "hostapd" deamon is only working, after i pressed the "apply setting immidiately".
Is there any temporäre possiblity to start the deamon per script after logoff/logon, whithout firmware update in the future?
It should be permanent, probably in the nvram, until this error is fixed in the firmware.
In administration/diagnose "hostapd -B /tmp/ath0_hostap.conf" command is not working correctly, that means the deamon will not start.
Because of our unsaved dd-wrt TL-wr1043nd situation,
i tried this today:
1. PowerOn TL-WR1043ND
2. Go in DD-WRT Webinterface
Security WPA2 Enterprise/AES/Radius was configured
Pressed "apply setting immediately"
only then is wpa2 on wr1043nd enabled
(not after power on, because the hostapd was not running)
4. enable in dd-wrt administration/management "jffs2" support
5. mkdir /jffs/etc/config
6. cp /tmp/ath0_hostap.conf /jffs/etc/config/ath0_hoatap.conf
7. make rc_startup /jffs/etc/config/startup.if
8. new File /jffs/etc/config/startup.if
/usr/sbin/hostapd -B /jffs/etc/config/ath0_hostap.conf
9. make the file executable chmod 700 startup.if
After power off/on this file should be executed, but it will not, why?
When i do execute the script manually, i got error: socket[PF_INET6,SOCK_DGRAM]: Address family not supported by protocol", but the dd-wrt is going in save mode.
