Today's issue, from my very own LinkedIn page;
My Macbook won't connect to certain hotspots - Today, it's my mobile hotspot - with WPA PSK or WPA PSK 2 security settings.WPA/WPA2 are from the year 2003. It's been around a while and has some issues. My Macbook is from the year 2013. My initial thought as simply that my machine was too old and incompatible with the newer standard - This has happened before years ago, with the same security settings.
The following is part of my normal network; As you can see, I have security in place that I usually can connect to easily. The reason there's no Transmit Rate is because we still don't have internet restored.
This is my Hotspot;
And here are the settings on my phone;
This article says that since the WPA2 PSK key doesn't mention TKIP or AES, it's probably AES.
Here's someone with the same "issue" (It's not really an issue, I can use the internet, after all). Responses say that it's a router issue. Perhaps it's because my phone's primary function isn't a router, and X0 is a stand in code.
Back to the LinkedIn page, Steven gave some possible resolutions, so let's see what we can do.
Can you believe, that when I tried it again today, it .... worked?
