802.1x with PEAP fails on Unified

Unanswered Question

We have an issue with a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Laptop. It uses 802.1x with dynamic WEP and PEAP-MSCHAP (MS-IAS), Verisign Imported Certificate. It works fine in a Autonomous environment but fails in Unified environment. Other laptops work fine in both environments with the same setup. Debug on the WiSM shows the EAP request identity/start message send to the client. But there's no answer from the client; Reached Max EAP-Identity Request retries (21) for STA

Any help is welcome!

If the issue is with the certain brand of laptop, look at the wireless card firmware. What type of card are in these laptops? What configuration has changed between the Autonomous and the LWAPP (basic settings). What does the log show on the IAS server?

Yes, only this brand. I've downloaded the latest Vista driver for this laptop from the Fujitsu Siemens support website, but it doesn't solve the issue.

Did I hear you say VISTA? LOL. There are a lot of issues with wireless and vista right out of the box. A lot of the problem revolves around the wireless chipset manufacturers. What card is in the laptop?
