Wireless on XP clients, PEAP setting not applying from Group Policy GPO
Posted on 2011-09-22
I have a problem as follows.
I have set up some Cisco Aironet 1042 APs. These use RADIUS to authenticate the clients against our Active Directory using EAP.
Our Windows 7 laptops will connect and authenticate straight away with no problem.
By default when the Windows XP SP3 clients try to connect they display an error "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network xxxxx". This can be resolved by setting the EAP type to 'PEAP' instead of 'Use smart card or other certificate'.
I have created a GPO for the XP clients to pre-configure the SSID so that the correct settings should be available, however the 'EAP Type Protected PEAP (PEAP)' setting does not get set on the client. All the other GPO settings do get set correctly.
Does anyone know why this setting is not being applied by the GPO?
Thanks in advance.
