EAP support with cisco access points and windows 2008 server NPS

Hi all, I tried to set up wpa enterprise on standalone cisco APs with the new windows 2K8 NPS, I followed these tutorials:

and I got my radius working.

Now I setted up EAP authentication on my cisco 1231ap, and I manually added the SSID on my windows 7 station and unchecked the validate servers identity as I have not created a server cert for now.
I set PEAP method on the client.
I allowed PEAP in the windows 2008 NPS configuration, however, when I try to connect, I can see "client's EAP method not allowed/supported" or something like that in the events monitoring.

My question is, did someone successfully made EAP working with windows NPS and cisco APs ?

The PDF document doesn't include what is needed for Wireless 802.11x PEAP connections.  PEAP authentication must be configured under Connection Request Policies.

Create a new Connection Request Policy. Give is a name. Type of network access server: Unspecified.

Add Condition of NAS Port Type: Common 802.1X "Wireless - IEEE 802.11" and Others "Wireless - Other"
Here are the screen shots.  I have this running for Windows 2008 R2 and Cisco 801 AP.
