Failure quiet period

If the supplicant fails the authentication process, the authenticator sends another Request Identity frame after 30 seconds by default. The quiet period is a transmit interval time after a failed authentication.

The Request Identity Re-transmit interval is for an unresponsive supplicant. You can configure the interval for a maximum of 10 times for an unresponsive supplicant.

  1. Configure the amount of time that the authenticator waits to re-transmit a Request Identity frame after a failed authentication in INTERFACE mode (1 to 65535, default 60 seconds).
