wireless 802.1x client issue
Posted on 2012-03-28
I have some older laptops which are having trouble connecting to my new 802.1x SSID. These older clients have no problem connecting when not using the 802.1x authentication. My newer clients have no issues with the 802.1x network.
The older clients are running windows xp using windows zero config (not the wireless adapter supplicant). The wireless adapter drivers are older and cannot be updated. I have temporarily tried using a linksys USB adapter on these older clients which works fine with 802.1x, however i would like to use the built-in wireless adapter instead. Can the 802.1x configuration be changed to work better with the legacy wireless clients? I am looking for recommendations on fixes or troubleshooting to pinpoint exactly whats causing the issue?
