Same subnet AP instructions. I have 3200 ACM on another floor handling DHCP and such.
Everything works fine, until I turn on Wifi security. once I do, Windows 10 and iPhone 7 will not join to this unit.
Windows 10 says "Can't connect to this network", and iPhone just keeps asking for a new password.
On the Wireless security page, I have WPA2 Personal selected only and CCMP-128 only selected. I have verified password is correct.
Right now, to test, I have 5GHz security turned off, so I can Wifi connect to the device to ensure it's not a radio issue, and 2.4Ghz (ath1) configured as above. I am more used to r24 stuff, so I am sure I am doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what. Anyone running this mode with WPA2 enabled?

I am running r42847 on my 3200 but refuse to use the 2.4Ghz as it has been nothing but trouble.
Yesterday I I tried to activate the 2.4Ghz and could not connect my Tab4 Android. Didn't get too concerned as I'm used to it not working on my 3200.
Since however r42847 was working so well on my 5Ghz network I decided to try it out on my 1900's. That was a mistake. Although the WDS links came up well (Many recent releases WDS didn't work on 1900) my Tab4 Android could not connect to any of my 2.4Ghz AP's (Disabled/Disconnected). My cameras and ESP8266 devices did connect but some would periodically drop and re-connect (not a new thing).
I tried multiple reboots on all devices, but nothing changed. Doubled checked all my settings as going from such an old build on the 1900's many settings were different.
Finally I dropped the 1900's back to r31924 and everything has been rock solid for the past 12 hours, no drops or reconnects.
As you can see from my profile I don't use the 2.4Ghz on my 3200 and doubt if I ever will. Again I agree with the GURU's, the 3200 works for some applications but not for anything to do with 2.4Ghz. Get a separate Router/AP for that purpose. _________________ WRT3200acm Master WDS 5GHz 80Mhz CH 100 (+6) r47608
