Description

If 'Enable IEEE802.1X Authentication' is checked and external RADIUS server info is provided pfSense generates hostapd config file with:

wpa_passphrase=

option and hostapd throws error:

Configuration file: /var/etc/hostapd_ath0_wlan0.conf
Line 22: invalid WPA passphrase length 0 (expected 8..63)
1 errors found in configuration file '/var/etc/hostapd_ath0_wlan0.conf'

wpa_passphrase should not be included in the config file because it's not needed with RADIUS server configuration.

If i do enter it on the GUI everything works fine.
