I recently bought Asus's router RT-N16 which has those 2 chips:
ETH chip1: BCM4718A1
I bought it with intention to connect it to wired 802.1x network in our student's dorm. I flashed it and installed OpenWRT, installed wpa_supplicant, created a config file... so far, so good. But when I want to run wpa_supplicant with the following command:
wpa_supplicant -i eth0.1 -D roboswitch -p multicast_only=1 -c etc/config/wpa.conf
I get an error, saying:
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant eth0: Unsupported driver 'roboswitch'
I read some articles, that roboswitch might no longer be supported with switch's version, so I ran the following command to start it too:
wpa_supplicant -i eth0.1 -c etc/config/wpa.conf
which returned me this error:
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant n180211: Could not configure driver mode n180211: deinit ifname=eth0 disabled_lib_rates=0 eth0: Failed to initialize driver interface
I read this ticket too: https://dev.archive.openwrt.org/ticket/14374.html . It was posted 4 years ago, so I have a question, if 802.1x is already supported on my chip? Another question: if it's not supported, is there a way to get this router up and running on 802.1x or did I throw my money away on this router?
If you need any additional config files etc., I'm ready to provide them.
