Hello Everyone,


I have a CPE510

Model CPE510 v3.20 (EU)

Firmware 2.2.2 Build 20200612 rel38059

Operation Mode: Client

Location: Switzerland


I have an in issue connecting the CPE510 in client mode to a Deco M5 Network.


Deco M5 is configured as such:

5GHz Network

Security WPA2-PSK [AES]


CPE510 is configured as the screenshot below:



If I run a dmesg I get the following output, which looks quite ok to me:



ieee80211_wifipos_vdetach:3740 Release the socket

iwconfig shows the following:


ath7      IEEE 802.11na  ESSID:"T&F&T"  Nickname:"CPE510"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:4.92 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated

          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0



After a while, the dmesg command shows that the port goes in disabling state:


br0: port 3(ath7) entering disabled state
[ieee80211_ioctl_setmlme] set desired bssid e4:c3:2a:09:df:5f


I tried also to lock the CPE510 to a specific AP of the Deco network, but it does not work as well.

Connecting the CPE510 to another access point works flawlessly.


What is the issue here?


Thanks for your help.
