Wireless EAP getting auth OK but not auth'ing

Hi Everyone,

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction here. I have a user on my wireless lan which is 802.1x EAP authenticated via my domain controller (Fruityloops / and my AP is and for the record <<001c.bfa9.f53e>> is the MAC of the end user (STN).

From reading the snippet 1 when it gets "Received from Access-Accept" but it never lets the user authenticate.

Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I want this one single MAC on full bypass authentication which is why it has a proxy-policy-name with that MAC as the client calling-station-identifier so it doesn't try to auth as its my dad's work laptop and his work use another domain name which causes clashes.
