We have replaced the computer. There is nothing in the Exchange iis logs.
The problem occurs when a user have been off-site and then return to the office and power up the laptop, and maybe (not confirmed) when switching between wifi and lan.
Do you have any tips?

This event is generated when a logon request fails. It is generated on the computer where access was attempted.

The Subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.

The Logon Type field indicates the kind of logon that was requested. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).

The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.

The Network Information fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.

The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.
      - Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.
      - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.
      - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested

Hi,

This could be the Wireless Access Point device caching user's previous password. Please check and remove if there is any account information caching on the Access Point device.

The interesting part of the log you posted it that the login process was using CHAP which as SreRaj may be caused from some type of wireless authentication.  Are you using RADIUS or any type of port security?
