iwconfig 'Rx invalid crypt' not updated for HW crypt errors

Reported by: tharvey Assigned to:
Priority: minor Milestone: version 1.0.0 - first stable release
Component: madwifi: driver Version:
Keywords: "Rx invalid crypt" Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


If SW crypto is used and a frame decryption fails, the invalid crypt counter gets bumped, but not if the decryption was done in HW and failed.

I encountered this using WEP encryption on two Ubiquity SR5's (AR5212 - supports HW WEP). I purposely set an invalid WEP key and failed to see the counter get bumped.
