SSID Association problems

Reported by: aris.lambrianidis@… Owned by: con@…
Priority: tbd Milestone: ietf-099
Component: network Keywords:
Cc: My Current Location: 8th Floor, Room 8078
My MAC Address: a4:5e:60:c2:a6:ad My OS: MacOS Sierra 10.12.5 (since a few minutes ago) and as of now, 10.12.6



It looks like my laptop stopped being able to associate itself with either the the ietf-hotel or the hhonors SSID, *specifically* while being in my room. /var/log/wifi.log shows the following message:
<kernel> Unexpected payload found for message 9, dataLen 0

Other SSIDs (e.g. tethering via my mobile phones) works fine.
Note that connectivity in my room was fine up until yesterday, and that while at the congress hall area, I also did, and still do not, have any issues.

Basic steps I took to troubleshoot include turning the adapter off/on, and rebooting. No luck.

So I hunted around the Hotel's WiFi? controller looking for your associations, but they had since been removed from their active logs. We have seen some issues here with some fine tuning for their in-room wireless hardware. So far our solution has been to do as you did, turn wireless on and off and hope it connects to an AP closer to you.

If this is still an issue for you, please let me know. I can potentially have the hotel drop an access point in your room directly.

If you are checking out today, and this is no longer an issue I'll go ahead and close this ticket.

Please reply to re-open if you are still experiencing these issues.
