Logging of WiFi Attachment Attempts in Windows 7?

Posted on 2012-08-16

I am having trouble attaching to a Cisco access point to which I have added multiple SSIDs and VLANs.  The workstations start to connect and are in sync with regards to the capabilities (WPA-Personal) and the password.  But then in the end it fails with Windows was unable to connect to yanet _Trouble Shoot Problems_.  Troubleshooter fails to resolve anything.  Is there any way to enable logging in Windows to troubleshoot what is happening during the WiFi connection attempt.  I want to see precisely what is failing.

The AP is Cisco 1100 Aironet.  Using the B/G radio.  Two SSIDs.  Two VLANs.  Guest beaconing.

install wireshark and you can see the packets

Well that was a decent suggestion.  The problem is that no packets are visible trying to attach to the new SSID's.  So it looks like the issue is at the IP pre-packet formation level. Need to see what of the negotiation is failing.

The wireshark was not able to help with the pre-IP negotiation trouble shooting.  But I can see how it could help afterwards.  THanks.
