Hi Guys, I need some help with this one, I have two customer that have Wii boxes and nether can get the Wii boxes online. I have whitlisted the mac address on the portal side but I'm not seeing the wii boxes getting an IP addresss.

local6.notice coova-chilli[2617]: chilli.c: 2822: New DHCP request from MAC=00-22-4C-CD-E1-5B

10 minutes later

local6.info coova-chilli[2617]: chilli.c: 2954: DHCP addr released by MAC=00-22-4C-CD-E1-5B IP=0.0.0.0

Running 2693 om OM1P for both units

Any ideas is there something I have to do inside the OM1P boxes

thanks

I'm not sure it's relevant, but I've had issues in the past with setting up a Wii on an open network vs one with a password, where it wouldn't connect at all to an open one.

Well you know what I'm using on the back end and mac address and password has been entered there.

But the OM1P is not even handing out an ip address, so I thought that maybe it was some strange issue within the om1p / robin software blocking it.

Is there anyway to look for the handshake when the unit is trying to connect to it.

can you try and replace in your mysql db the followin,

"User-Password := password"

with

Auth-Type := Accept


Tag this to the mac your trying to white list. I played around with this awhile back and found it much better to whitelist people with. The moment the device connects it's whitelisted without having to pull up the splash page. It's possible this can help you. I want to say mac auth has to be on in robin, which I think it already is last time i checked.

Yes, but I have this problem with nodogsplash as well, so its not limited to CoovaChilli.

I too cannot get a Wii to connect to the public side of my network even with MAC authentication and Whitelisting the MAC. the Wii will not connect to the private side if it is hidden either. You have to un-hide the private and then connect to the network and then re-hide the SSID.

This could almost certainly be deemed a problem with the wii's wifi capability. it has an ethernet port, right? why not just throw a mr3201a in front of it?

Edit: didn't realize this would require a lan adapter also.

I'm going to tell them to use a second WiFi router and connect that to the OM1P, then connect wireless from the Wii to the router.

I can then Whitelist the router.

If you look at your logs inside of the mesh devices that the clients use, you should notice that the Wii mac address is not giving an IP address through dhcp.

I like the idea that foxtroop11 suggested, I'm going to do som more testing and report back here on tomorrow.

I'm going to go through all the possibilities of getting a Wii connected.

But no matter what the Wii has to get an IP in order to proceed, if it's not then it's going no where.

There must an error in the dhcp handout that the mesh iptable rules are blocking based on the Wii mac address numbers.

BTW which channel are you guys using on the mesh units I'm using 5 and I read somewhere that the Wii really wants to use 1 - 6 or 11 in order to function correctly.

Any thoughts on this.

Very interested in what you come up with. This is currently just a personal problem on my network but I know a customer is going to call me and ask why they can't connect the Wii.

My network is on channel 4 and I still have a problem.

as a note: I have been able to get the Wii to connect to the Public with MAC authentication but it was about 6 months ago and have not been able to do it since.

All, I'm completely new here to open mesh and am a bit unclear of the "options" available to clients but in looking at the issue here it would appear the WII is already associating to the wireless just fine..just not obtaining an IP via dhcp correctly. Has anyone attempted using a static IP on the WII to verify its not just a WII issue with the way it requests DHCP? Also the WII's get upgrades as well. Can you verify they are running whatever the latest code is on the WII? Only reason I throw this out is I've seen this particular issue in non standard wireless devices (mostly medical based) on other wireless networks. Just figured I'd throw it out..

That I'm unsure of. I'm not sure how open-mesh handles addressing. I found this on their site but have concerns as it appears it would change your network name and force ALL clients to re-connect to a new network name if your not already setup this way so I'd be careful with it:

I have not tried Nodogsplash. My network is a paid one so I need the splashpage to allow signup for the service. Unless I can turn it off in just the one client Node. I will read up on nodogsplash.

My network already uses "node name" so that would not be a problem but the "Uncheck AP Isolation" makes me nervous. What other effects will that have on my network? Will customers be able to see each others computers?

Again I'm running into my lack of knowledge here. But the open-mesh site defines AP isolation as:
Access Point Isolation. This is a firewall that blocks access to other users connected wirelessly or wired on the nodes.

To me ... it appears this would allow machines connected to the same node to "see" eachother. I believe I read somewhere there was a way to "bypass" the splash/portal page per client as well, BUT again...in order to pull up that portal page the machine/device would have to already have received an IP. If its not getting an IP I would assume it couldn't make it to the splash page anyway.

Turning it off will allow all users connected to a node to visible - a very,very bad thing if running a public network, but ok if its CPE side.
