Issue Description
Why Cannot a STA Associate with an AP When WPA-PSK Authentication Is Used?
Solution
AC+FIT AP:

    The AC's interface connecting to the switch or AP is not added to service VLANs. During the authentication, keys need to be exchanged through the service channel; therefore, the interfaces must be added to service VLANs.

    The STA does not support WPA2-PSK. For example, the computer runs an early version of Windows XP without patches installed, the computer may not support WPA2-PSK. Patches need to be installed on the computer.

FAT AP:

    The STA does not support WPA2-PSK. For example, the computer runs an early version of Windows XP without patches installed, the computer may not support WPA2-PSK. Patches need to be installed on the computer.
