5508 wlan gui psk format shows ascii is actually hex

Version 7.0.116.0  wlan psk format shows as ascii in gui but is configured as hex.

Appears to be cosmetic bug as clients still work ok when entering in correct hex key.

Thanks

Has anyone seen this on WLC controllers. My lab 2106 also has same trouble with 7.0.98 code ?

Jim,

I don't have that issue with a 2106 running 7.0.x and I dont' have that issue on any 5508 doing PSK.  If I set the PSK to ASCII on the WLAN, that is what I enter on my clients.  I'm running right now 7.0.220.0 with no issues.

Hello Scott - thanks for the reply.

You misunderstand the problem.

Try setting the PSK key for HEX format in the gui. After you setup the hex key it works ok for client but

the gui screen still shows it to be ascii.

Oh... no that is normal.  That is the default in the drop down box, that is why.

Thanks Scott,

Do you know of any cli command that will actually show the psk key format?

show wlan XX only shows psk enabled.

There isn't one. The show WLAN xx is the same output if you did a show run-config. You might try to dump the config and open it up in notepad.

Ive never seen any mention about pulling the PSK form the WLC. You can pull the WEP key from the WLC, I know that ...

If you use Windows XP and PSK, you can pull the PSK from the reg file with wzcook ...
