At my school , I still have problems getting wifi connection via Beryl

Hello helpful souls,

This is a follow up request for help after my last
At my school , I have problems getting wifi connection via Beryl

At my school , I still have problems getting wifi connection via Beryl.

This is still what I repeatedly get after pasting in the wifi password.

Beryl router
— > No Internet Connection! Find new networks to reconnect.
— > “Wrong key” message.

No captive portal.

No idea what Fortinet or Palo Alto firewall software my school is using has that makes it impossible to use Beryl so far.

I have tried the following solutions found online , without success:
*
*
* Downloaded driver version 3.212
GL.iNet download center
*
*
* “In WiFi settings, change bandwidth to fixed e.g. HT20. Do not use HT20/HT40.
Do this for both 2.4G and 5G wifi.”
Cannot connect to open hotel wifi anymore, getting wrong key when connecting - #7 by mbg
*
*
* disabled “DNS Rebinding Attack Protection” feature in Beryl router , according to
Connect to Captive Portal - GL.iNet Docs
*
*
* Tried using MAC Clone.
MAC Clone - GL.iNet Docs

All without success.

Any other workaround?

Please advise.

Thank you very much.

Can you give the log on the Beryl after the “wrong key” problem happens?

In 3.212 snapshot this should have been fixed, except for connecting to some Fritz!box.

Can you downgrade to 3.203 firmware and check? It is reported that 3.203 works with Fritz!box.

Thanks.

I will give it a go and report back.

Hi. How did this go for you? I’m having the same issue with my Beryl router. Had someone suggest reading this thread and downgrade my firmware. I did that without success. Just wondering if you figured something out.

Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply.

I have been busy and have not tried it yet.

I shall try it next Tuesday at school

Here is my report.

I downgraded to version 3.203.

Does not work.

Got the same message that says.
No Internet Connection! Find new networks to reconnect.

So I upgraded back to version 3.211
This time , I chose 5 GHz wifi
And , bingo , it seems to work.

I have not done anything different this time.

Except , this time , I chose 5 GHz instead of 2.4GHz.

So , it looks like 2.4 GHz wifi will fail to work with Beryl at my school.

I wonder why I did not choose 5 GHz before and tried.

I guess I was not as curious as I thought I was.

Or not as good at troubleshooting as I thought I was.

Bottomline:
Try 5GHz and see if it works for you.
