Hi everybody,

customer wants WPA - PSK and MAC based athentcation.
So if I choose WLAN Service - "Name" - Auth & Acct - Mode: 802.1x this isn't working with message: "Auth. Mode 802.1x is not compatible with Privacy WPA-PSK.
Save[Disabled] or not?"
If I set "Mode: disabled" and then choose "Enable MAC-based authentication" I can add the Radius and select "MAC" - by clicking "Save" no error message occurs.
Will this work as expected?

Hi Stephan

Yes this should work. The service privacy (encryption) would be WPA/PSK as you say.
