WPS Provisioning

When GS node is configured as a limited AP provisioning the GainSpan node using WPS(AT+WWPS) is not supported. Whereas using web provisioning this can be achieved. Please find below scenarios for working and not working case.

 

Scenario 1:

 

  1. GS node configured as a limited AP

 

                AT+WM=2

                AT+NSET=192.168.91.1,255.255.255.0,192.168.91.1

                AT+WA=GainSpanAP,,6

                AT+DHCPSRVR=1

                AT+WEBPROV=,,,2,,1

 

  1. Connect laptop/pc/mobile device to the created Gain span network(GainSpan_AP)
  2. Open gsprov.html(//IP/gsprov.html)
  3. Select WPS PUSH or PIN method
  4. Press WPS button(for PBC) on the router within 120 sec or register WPS PIN on the AP

 

Result: Node gets provisioned with WPS. Module gets associates with the provisioned AP as ncm is enabled in the web provisioning server followed by system reset.

 

Scenario 2:

 

  1. GS node configured as a limited AP

 

                AT+WM=2

                AT+NSET=192.168.91.1,255.255.255.0,192.168.91.1

                AT+WA=GainSpanAP,,6

                AT+DHCPSRVR=1

                AT+WEBPROV=,,,2,,1

 

  1. Issue at+wwps=1 to trigger wps from the module

 

Result: Module will not initiate wps in limited AP mode when at+wwps command is issued.

 

Solution:

 

Module has to be disconnected from the current network(at+wd). Set the mode to client(at+wm=0). Then trigger wps (at+wwps) to initiate wps procedure.
