Microsoft Radius - Users can't authenticate through wireless from another child domain.

We have a multiple sites A and B child domains, there is trust between A and B, both are child domains, it's Active Directory 2008 functional level.  If user from site A travels to site B, users in the A cannot not authenticate to user B site.

The authentication method is PEAP.  Could we just add the domain users from site A.  Is this possible, if not then how do we resolve this?

If run the following query on site B
Nslookup -q=src _ldap._tcp.dc_msdcs.siteaaddomain
What is the response that you get? If you get nothing this means your DNS is not setup to provide site A DC information to which the request would be sent.

Your question confuses

Usera from site A travels to site b,

You may need to add site A DNS stub on site B.
Or establish conditional forwarders on each end for the other. Presumably you have the sites connected via a VPN.

Just more information that I left out.  Child domain A user traveling to site B can authenticate to child domain A through a wired connection but not through wireless.
What DNS if any does the wireless connection provides versus the wired.
What ip does the user get on each and what the VPN policy say about the wireless segment?

Ok, did a bit more troubleshooting this morning.  When the child domain A user is wired in, then takes the the laptop off the network onto the wireless, the user can authenticate using Radius to the wireless.

Do you think this is still a DNS issue?
What do you mean?  When the user is already logged in, the authentication to wireless is an 802.1x type to authorize the computer/user to access/use the wireless connection?

If the user simply goes and boots the computer than the wifi connection, the user can not authenticate into the laptop?
