Upgrade 2.4 killed my wpa2-eap with ntlm passwords

  • After upgrading to pfsense 2.4 I was forced to upgrade to Freeradius 3. Now I can't login anymore on my wpa2-eap wifi network from any device (Windows 7, Android 7).

    "Login incorrect (mschap: FAILED: No NT/LM-Password. Cannot perform authentication):"

    Before it worked with ntlm passwords.

    Somebody any idea what the problem is. Else I need to go back to version 2.3 till I figur out what the problem is.

  • Try rebooting manually.  I had WPA2-EAP issues after an upgrade, and rebooting manually resolved it, as silly as it sounds.

  • After upgrading to 2.4 I had a mounting problem (error 19 see: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=137929.0). To fix this I had to reboot several times. Now after several hours sleep I rebooted again but WPA2-EAP is still nog working. I use Freeradius also for captive portal and openvpn both work just wpa-eap is not working. I restarted the accesspoints but it keep giving:

    Oct 13 13:23:27 radiusd 48737 (38) Login incorrect (mschap: FAILED: No NT/LM-Password. Cannot perform authentication): [Username] (from client AP2 port 0 via TLS tunnel)
    Oct 13 13:23:20 radiusd 48737 (30) Login incorrect (eap_peap: The users session was previously rejected: returning reject (again.)): [anonymous] (from client AP3 port 0 cli F0-D7-AA-xx-xx-xx)

  • Today I reinstalled 2.4 used a backup config. Problem still there. Then I reinstalled 2.3 again with the same backup config and everything is working again. So for me no 2.4 yet.
