[Micronet] AirBears2 Login keeps coming back

Beth Muramoto
This might be an itshelp question, but I wanted to see if anyone on the list might have some theories.

I have a user (using a Macbook - older while plastic model) who is constantly being asked to enter her AirBears2 credentials (both at shut down, restart, and even disconnecting from it from the wifi and reconnecting to it). This a recent issue in that she was able to do this until she logged onto a Starbucks wifi. I don't think there's a correlation, but let me know if I'm missing something.

I've checked in Network and deleted as many of the listed joined networks she had (she didn't want to delete some like home and known wifi like other libraries -- we deleted hotels, airports, and other misc guest logins -- there was no starbucks listed there though).

I looked into her Keychain Access and didn't see anything obvious, but if you can point me to what to look for maybe I missed something there. Is there a plist I should be seeing other than the system preferences one?

The AirBears2 access point near my office is working as we were able to log in using our iPhones.

She is having the same problem with connecting to eduroam as well.

She can connect to other wifi accesses without a problem so I don't think it's a physical/antenna issue.

I've tried all I had in my cache, so if anyone has other suggestions, they are appreciated.

I don't have a real solution, but I can note that (on my fairly new MacBook Pro) I have what sounds like the same issue; AirBears2 / eduroam credential windows will pop up frequently on connecting to WiFi. What I've found is that if I simply hit cancel / esc to close the login prompt, within the next minute it will connect normally, password remembered. Not a solution, but a workaround.

Michael,

No, I haven't advised the user to do that just because the key worked on her iPhone set up, so I assumed it wasn't related.

Re: [Micronet] AirBears2 Login keeps coming back

Michael Chung
Hey Beth,

I would definitely try resetting the AirBears2 key. I've seen a number of authentication problems resolved (both AirBears2 and bConnected Application Key) by simply reseting the key. Especially on Macs. I wish I had a technical explanation, but unfortunately all I have is anecdotal advice.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
