    1313WPA is available in two flavors: WPA-EAP (also referred to as WPA-Enterprise) and WPA-PSK. [wiki:UserDocs/HostAP#WPAPSKsetup WPA-PSK] uses pre-shared keys, while [wiki:UserDocs/HostAP#WPAEAPsetup WPA-EAP] makes use of an external authentication server.

     15== General note about bridging == 
     16 
     17If you're bridging between the wireless and wired (ie using brctl), you '''must''' add a line such as: 
     18 
     19{{{ 
     20bridge=br0 
     21}}} 
     22 
     23or whatever the bridge name you are using to the config file, or the WPA key exchange packets will get eaten by the bridge. 
     24 
     25Symptom of this problem is that the host AP will retransmit the WPA key exchange packets (3 times) then deassociate the authenticating STA. The associating STA will receive the initial EAP-KEY packets, and respond, but the transmissions from the STA never reach the host AP daemon.
