The following was posted in the "General Questions" forum for over a week with no responses.
If the explanation is not a bug in the wireless code, it's a documentation bug, but it seems pretty clear what the two "+" settings mean.  I can help look at the source code, but I could use a pointer to where to start looking.


I have an HP iPaq handheld that can do WPA-PSK with TKIP, but I can't associate
to my WAP running m0n0wall 1.3b9 unless I do the following on m0n0wall's WLAN config page:

1) set "WPA version" to "WPA Only"
   "WPA + WPA2" would seem to mean either WPA or WPA2 is OK, but this setting
   doesn't work (the handheld can't connect to the WLAN)

2) set "Cipher" to "TKIP"
   "TKIP + AES/CCMP" would seem to mean either TKIP or AES/CCMP is OK, but this
   setting doesn't work.

With those settings, the handheld connects just fine.

Is this a bug in m0n0wall, or do I misunderstand the meaning of the
"A + B"-type settings?

M0n0wall 1.31 on Alix2c3 (3 LAN / 2 miniPCI / LX800 / 256 MB / USB)
WLAN: Compex WLM54G 200mW b/g
