Laptops failing to authenticate
Ever since our CISCO wireless kit was installed we seem to be having a problem with laptops failing to authenticate seemingly at random. I'll try to explain the setup: -
CISCO APs (enterprise level Kit)
CISCO controlers and Radius server remotely located in LEA on adifferent domain working across a trust to us for LDAP queries.
Laptops configured to use PEAP authentication with computer information.
Laptops using 11g only with win XP
When I ask the network guys at county for the error messages it seems the LDAP query is timing out.
This continues until I plug the laptop into a wired connection and log onto the domain then it seems to find the laptop and everything works for a while then the same happens again.
I've just come back from some time away to find 8 of our science laptops in this state - just reconnecting them to the domain seems to remind the server that they are still around.

This is the error message from the radius server.

There's a bug in the XP that stops it from updating the machine password over wifi, it needs to be plugged into a wired connection. This was fixed in Win7.
