I am having a problem with the Pi3 and wireless connections. I am using arch linux, wpa_supplicant.
First of all let me say that I have absolutely no problem with home wifi wireless connections using either wpa-psk or no password and I understand the wpa_supplicant file.
The problem arises when trying to connect with a cell phone hot spot. The scan sees it, the proper ssid and passphrase are in the wpa_supplicant file but it will not connect.
I get error messages like:
unknown eap method sim
failed to parse eap sim
failed to parse psk
unknown eap IKEV2
This is with an iphone. Here is the edited - pw removed wpa_supplicant file:
The #psk= lines do have the real (correct) passphrase and the created psk= lines are longer.
In the above case the connection to the Buffalo router DOES work as do connections to other routers I have tried. The connection to the iphone does not. Other people have tried iphone and android phones and had the same problem.
If anyone has a working wpa_supplicant for a phone please pass it on - minus passphrase.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
