We are using CoovaChilli (V. 1.0.11) for quite a long time now. Since we have Nokia N95 8GB users and iPhone users, some login problems occure.
We use MAC authentication for the inhouse mobile phones and the mentioned devices are registered with the MAC address (HS-MACAUTH) in the local.conf and the AAA server. Usually and with most of all devices, we can attach to the W-LAN without giving any user credentials, except some Nokia N95s and iPhone after browsing a certain time, the landing page appears.
The log on the CoovaChilli server sais, that the device asks for a new IP and releases the old one (even if there is no need, the recent IP should be used still). If the devices stop the W-LAN and do not do any requests for a few minutes (about 15) they can log in again without having to give the credentials again, but the problem reappears after some time.
As i had the same prob with my N95 8GB i updated up to the newest firmware release (20.0.16) and the problem were gone until i took the access point on our floor from the LAN and tried with the ones from the floor underneath, i got the message, that no internet router/gateway was reachable (" No Gateway reply " or " Kein Internet Gateway ". Then i had to delete the saved connections on my device and after reconnecting it worked again, but how long?
Has anybody else troubles with iPhones and Nokia N95 8GB (all other Nokias work fine @ us)
Thank U for any reply and assistance
