In order for a client (e.g. mobile phone) to make a new connection to an existing Wi-Fi Network, the Wireless Access Point ("WAP") must make a valid association with your client device to a Wi-Fi Network SSID that is broadcast from that WAP.
If the association to an SSID fails then a network connection cannot be established. Listed below are the most common reasons that a client fails to associate to a WAP.
- Bad password (e.g. you typed in the wrong password)
- Bad encryption type (e.g. you selected the wrong encryption type)
- Wi-Fi SSID not broadcasting
The Komodo Association Test is the first Komodo Test that is executed during a test run and is designed to confirm that the expected SSID is being broadcast by the WAP and that a client device can make a valid association to that SSID.
