Hi all, anyone know what might be going on here? VAP with Authentication is not working (even on latest build).

I have my 2nd router (ASUS RT-AC66U) acting as a Repeater Bridge connected to my ASUS RT-AC68U, and the only things done to configure Router #2 as a bridge was :

1. Change Local Router IP so it dosn't collide with Router #1
2. Set Gateway IP to Router #1 IP
3. Set Local DNS to Router #1 IP
4. Checked Assign WAN Port to Switch
5. Disabled DHCP
6. Disabled WAN connection

0. Set Wireless wl0 to Repeater Bridge
1. Set Wireless wl0 to my SSID of Router #1
2. Set Wireless Security of wl0 to Password of Router #1
3. Created Virtual AP "GUEST", wl0.1, AP Isolation Enabled, NET Isolation Enabled, Optional DNS Target of Router #1 IP Address. IP Address 172.168.1.1
4. Assigned wl0.1 to br0
5. Assigned br0 to DHCP 0
I didnt have to run any manual iptables commands or anything. Just with the above settings, I can connect to my new "GUEST" access point. And I get internet, net/ap isolation is working, etc...

However, whenever I enable WiFi Security on the wl0.1 Virtual Access Point, then I cant connect to the network anymore on Android, or Windows 10. Windows 10 says "Unable to Authenticate". When I remove the WiFi password on the VAP -- then Im able to connect again and I have internet....ahghgh! Any ideas?!

Cheers!

EDIT: I upgraded to todays build of DDWRT "DD-WRT v3.0-r43813 giga (07/15/20)", and issue still persists Sad

what happens if you disable isolation on the VAP?

Bridged VAPs still require startup command workarounds.

Examples:

• VAPs not working at boot fixed for unbridged VAPs with r40564:40566. Workaround startup command:

Code:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;stopservice wlconf;startservice wlconf;startservice nas

Code:
sleep 10;stopservice nas;wlconf eth1 down;wlconf eth1 up;wlconf eth2 down;wlconf eth2 up;startservice nas

Code:
stopservice lan;
startservice lan;
wlconf eth1 down;
wlconf eth2 down;
wlconf eth1 up;
wlconf eth2 up;

Code:
sleep 20
nvram set wl1.1_hwaddr=
nvram commit
stopservice nas; wlconf eth1 down; wlconf eth2 down; wlconf eth1 up; wlconf eth2 up; startservice nas; logger "VAP workaround executed";

Code:
sleep 1
logger "VAP workaround starting";
nvram set wl1.1_hwaddr=
nvram commit
stopservice nas; wlconf eth1 down; wlconf eth2 down; wlconf eth1 up; wlconf eth2 up; startservice nas; logger "VAP workaround executed";

For what it's worth, I've had this same problem with a client bridge when authentication type is set to shared key instead of auto in the advanced settings.
