+# hostapd is implemented based on IEEE Std 802.1X-2004 which defines EAPOL
+# version 2. However, there are some clients that do not handle
+# the new version number correctly (they seem to drop the frames completely).
+# In order to make hostapd interoperate with these clients, the version number
+# can be set to the older version (1) with this configuration value.

# in this string will be converted to ASCII-0 (nul). This can be used to
# separate network info (comma separated list of attribute=value pairs); see,
