EAP-FAST /w Broadcom NIC

I am currently working on setting up a AIR-AP1231G-A-K9 running 12.3(8)JA. I have it configured for EAP-FAST using its local RADIUS server. Everything works perfectly with the Cisco card and client utility. As soon as I try and connect with a Broadcom adapter my AP logs state "Station xxxx.xxxx.xxxx Authentication failed" but my local radius server doesn't report a failed login attempt. It's like when using the Broadcom adapter the request isn't making it to the RADIUS server.

Any help would be appreciated if anyone has any experience with this.


Re: EAP-FAST /w Broadcom NIC

Add a "drop-packet" configuration parameter to the "packet retries <1-128>" configuration item under interface DotRadioX. This should be the line:packet retries 128 drop-packet. This configuration will make the AP drop packets destined for a client if the maximum retry count is reached instead of de-Associating the client which is by default
