Aruba Access Point WPA2 Enterprise Connection Issues

thedeal56 used Ask the Experts™
I am having trouble connecting to my WPA2 Enterprise access point.  I can connect to it with an iPad or Blackberry, but i cannot connect through windows 7.  When I attempt to connect through the windows wireless manager, it quickly tells me that I cannot connect.  I have manually configured the settings, but nothing I try works.  While it is trying to connect, if you look at the adapter, it says "Attempting to Authenticate" . It never gets past this point. I am guessing it has something to do with a certificate, but we are not using certificates.  I am not sure what all info I need to provide in order to receive help on this issue, as i have never set up an enterprise access point before.  Thanks for reading.

How do you control access? Do yoiu have 2008 NPS or 2003 IAS configured?


Thanks for the reply! We have 2003 IAS, but I am not sure what you mean by "control access".
What conditions and what authentication methods do you use?
Conditions: Do users need to be a part of a special Security group to get access?
By the look of it, you have PEAP with inner method of MSChap (windows user name and password), and not EAP-TLS (Certificates)

Have you chosen any less secure authentication methods?

On the 802.1X part of Aruba - have you chosen Enforce machine authentication?
