We ran into a problem with connecting mobile devices. The mobile devices will only connect wen we choose for WEP Encryption. Anything higher won't work. They will get an connection error (android) or password error IOS. The password entered is 100% correct. Laptops don't have this problem.
The units are the AP230 with software version HiveOS 6.2r1a.1931. Managed through HiveManager online.
Is this a known problem or is there a configuration that we are missing?
I am going to raise a request to adjust the text in HiveManager to make it clear that disabling WMM is nearly always a mistake and a bad thing. By spec, it limits clients to 802.11g data rates (so no 802.11n or 802.11ac rates) and causes significant compatibility issues.
Thank you so much for sharing the Apple article about WMM. I also see this description in HiveManager Online help. Let us know if there is some way we can make it clear.
Enable WMM: By default, Aerohive devices support WMM® (Wi-Fi MultimediaTM) traffic prioritization and advertise such support in the beacons they transmit. Leave the check box selected to enable support of WMM-marked frames for traffic categorization and QoS (Quality of Service) purposes.
In addition to using WMM for QoS, 802.11n HT (High Throughput) aggregation mechanisms such as block acknowledgments (block ACKs) rely on the WMM Traffic Identifier (TID) subfield in frame headers to function. To provide HT for 802.11n wireless clients, keep the check box selected. Otherwise, the maximum link rate for all clients, including those that support 802.11n, will be 54 Mbps.Regarding your suggestion about adjusting the text in HiveManager, are you talking about text in this screen?
