Hello EE,

Cisco Wireless 5108 when pointing to Domain Controller for Radius Authentication if I uncheck (Microsoft Encrypted Authentication version 2) in EAP properties on DC, authentication works.

When I check it, I get "Network Authentication failed due to problem with the user account".  I have Setup a backup Domain Controller with its own certificate and it works in authenticating but this domain controller does not.  The only difference I can determine is this uses a  wild card certificate and the other doesn't.  Is this why?

Can you post the logs?  If it's a 2003 DC you'll find IAS events in the system log.  If it's a 2008> DC you'll find them in Custom logs.

Here is what the event logs show.  Also I attached a screen shot of the wireless properties and wonder if the less secure should be used (see screen shot of properties attached)?

You're using computer authentication - therefore you need to use EAP-based authentication.  If you just use MSChapV2 without EAP the authentication will fail.
