The following information provides an example for configuring WPA2-PSK encryption.


This document applies to Comware 7-based access points. Procedures and information in the examples might be slightly different depending on the software or hardware version of the access points.

The configuration examples in this document were created and verified in a lab environment, and all the devices were started with the factory default configuration. When you are working on a live network, make sure you understand the potential impact of every command on your network.

This document assumes that you have basic knowledge of WLAN access and WLAN security.

Example: Configuring WPA2-PSK encryption

Network configuration

As shown in Figure 1, the clients access the WLAN provided by the fat AP. The fat AP obtains IP addresses from a DHCP server in the IP network.

·     Configure the fat AP to act as a DHCP server to assign IP addresses to the clients.

·     Configure WPA2-PSK encryption on the fat AP.

·     Configure open-system authentication and bypass authentication.

·     Set the AKM mode to PSK to protect client data transmission.

·     Set the CCMP cipher suite for frame encryption, and enable the RSN IE in beacon and probe responses.

Figure 1 Network diagram



1.     Configure AP interfaces:

# Create VLAN 100 and VLAN-interface 100, and assign an IP address to the VLAN interface. The AP will use this IP address to communicate with clients.

<WA5530> system-view

[WA5530] vlan 100

[WA5530-vlan100] quit

[WA5530] interface vlan-interface 100

[WA5530-Vlan-interface100] ip address 24

[WA5530-Vlan-interface100] quit

# Configure uplink interface VLAN-interface 1 to obtain IP addresses through DHCP.

[WA5530] interface vlan-interface 1

[WA5530-Vlan-interface1] undo ip address

[WA5530-Vlan-interface1] ip address dhcp-alloc

[WA5530-Vlan-interface1] quit

2.     Configure wireless services:

# Create service template service and enter its view.

[WA5530] wlan service-template service

# Configure the SSID as service.

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] ssid service

# Specify VLAN 100 for clients to access the WLAN defined by the service template.

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] vlan 100

# Set the AKM mode to PSK and configure simple character string 12345678 as the PSK.

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] akm mode psk

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] preshared-key pass-phrase simple 12345678

# Set the CCMP cipher suite for frame encryption, and enable the RSN IE in beacon and probe responses.

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] cipher-suite ccmp

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] security-ie rsn

# Enable the service template.

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] service-template enable

[WA5530-wlan-st-service] quit

3.     Bind the service template to interface WLAN-Radio 1/0/1.

[WA5530] interface wlan-radio 1/0/1

[WA5530-WLAN-Radio1/0/1] service-template service

[WA5530-WLAN-Radio1/0/1] quit

4.     Configure the DHCP service:

# Enable DHCP.

[WA5530] dhcp enable

# Create a DHCP address pool named vlan100, specify subnet, and specify gateway address

[WA5530] dhcp server ip-pool vlan100

[WA5530-dhcp-pool-vlan100] network mask

[WA5530-dhcp-pool-vlan100] gateway-list

[WA5530-dhcp-pool-vlan100] quit

Verifying the configuration

# Verify that the clients can access the WLAN through PSK authentication.

[WA5530] display wlan client verbose
