The device will not auto connect to an AP from stored profiles in station mode

Dear all

I can get SL_WLAN_CONNECT_EVENT and SL_NETAPP_IPV4_IPACQUIRED_EVENT after my device connect to an AP.

Then I try the following test in order to check the reconnect capability.

1. power off my AP.

2. the device will receive SL_WLAN_DISCONNECT_EVENT

3. power on my AP

Because I already set auto connect policy( using sl_WlanPolicySet) at the beginning.

Therefore I suppost that I could get SL_WLAN_CONNECT_EVENT after my AP is power on.

below is the code flow :

1. sl_start(0,0,0) to init device

2. sl_WlanProfileDel(0xFF) to make sure there is only one AP information by the following ProfileAdd function call

3. sl_WlanPolicySet(SL_POLICY_CONNECTION, SL_CONNECTION_POLICY(1, 0,0,0,0), NULL, 0) set AUTO connect policy

3. sl_WlanProfileAdd add one AP information

4. Get SL_WLAN_CONNECT_EVENT after my device connect to an AP

5. Get SL_WLAN_DISCONNECT_EVENT after I power off my AP

6. NO SL_WLAN_CONNECT_EVENT when I powr on my AP

From the spec, the device should try to connect to an AP from the stored profile after setting sl_WlanPolicySet.

How should I set in order to enable AUTO reconnect capabiility ?

Thank you

Veloso

  • Veloso,

    I'll check it on my setup and get back. Which SP and SDK version are you on? And, did you modify the scan cycle/interval?

    Hi Praneet

    Thanks for you help
    My SDK version is 1.0.0.1
    Howver I am not sure what my SP version is.
    Thyerefore I try to get it from sl_DevGet:
    NWP: 2.0.7.0
    FW: 0.0.4.1

    And I do not use any scan policy in my project.

    Veloso,

    You are on an older version of SP - Suggest you upgrade to the latest.

    I was not able to reproduce the issue w/ the latest package. Below is the code-snippet and the logs

    static long SetConnectionPolicy()
    
    {
    
       unsigned char policyVal;
    
       long lRetVal = -1;
    
       /* Clear all stored profiles and reset the policies */
    
       lRetVal = sl_WlanProfileDel(0xFF);
    
       ASSERT_ON_ERROR(lRetVal);
    
       lRetVal = sl_WlanPolicySet(SL_POLICY_CONNECTION, SL_CONNECTION_POLICY(0,0,0,0,0), 0, 0);
    
       ASSERT_ON_ERROR(lRetVal);
    
       //Add Profile
    
       /* user needs to change SSID_NAME = "<Secured AP>"
    
                SECURITY_TYPE = SL_SEC_TYPE_WPA
    
                SECURITY_KEY = "<password>"
    
         and set the priority as per requirement
    
         to connect with a secured AP */
    
       SlSecParams_t secParams;
    
       secParams.Key = SECURITY_KEY;
    
       secParams.KeyLen = strlen(SECURITY_KEY);
    
       secParams.Type = SECURITY_TYPE;
    
       lRetVal = sl_WlanProfileAdd(SSID_NAME,strlen(SSID_NAME),0,&secParams,0,1,0);
    
       ASSERT_ON_ERROR(lRetVal);
    
       //set AUTO policy
    
       lRetVal = sl_WlanPolicySet(SL_POLICY_CONNECTION,
    
                         SL_CONNECTION_POLICY(1,0,0,0,0),
    
                         &policyVal, 1 /*PolicyValLen*/);
    
       ASSERT_ON_ERROR(lRetVal);
    
       while(1)
    
       {
    
           //wait until IP is acquired
    
           while((!IS_CONNECTED(g_ulStatus)) || (!IS_IP_ACQUIRED(g_ulStatus)))
    
           {
    
               _SlNonOsMainLoopTask();
    
           }
    
           UART_PRINT("\n\r===>>> Device connected to AP\n\r");
    
           // Wait
    
           while(IS_CONNECTED(g_ulStatus))
    
           {
    
               _SlNonOsMainLoopTask();
    
           }
    
           CLR_STATUS_BIT(g_ulStatus, STATUS_BIT_CONNECTION);
    
           CLR_STATUS_BIT(g_ulStatus, STATUS_BIT_IP_AQUIRED);
    
           UART_PRINT("\n\r===>>> Device disconnected from AP\n\r");
    
       }
