Kind of a big deal

Re: MR42 Authentication failures

It means you have a bunch of clients using the wrong PSK.  It could even be students trying random keys.

Re: MR42 Authentication failures

Hi George,

I was having the same issue lately.

using MR42's as well on firmware MR 26.8.1

Password didn't change or anything, we also push the password via our management system (Jamf Pro) and we haven't changed anything there either.

so this problem came out of nowhere (so it seems).

we have it across all our +60 sites.

 

are you still experiencing this?

Same Issue here on School campus, It has progressively gotten worse, We also push SSID and Key, so nothing changed, Even rebuilt laptops with issues to see if it was a windows issue, no change, and it is about a 30% failure, and causes a disconnect of wireless devices when it happens. Come on Meraki, lets pull some data logs and figure this out.

Re: MR42 Authentication failures

yes we are. it's approaching 40-50% failure. the password is for our open byod network. it is known by all students and hasn't changed.

Re: MR42 Authentication failures

We upgraded our MR42's to 27.5.

so now we're waiting patiently for tickets to (not) come in.
