Our office has a cisco-based wireless lan using LEAP to authenticate. using cisco aironet 350 PCMCIA cards, everything works fine.
Settings are dynamic WEP We authenticate using our domain username and password
However, I (and our IS network guy) cannot get intel pro wireless 2100 or 2200bg mini-pci wireless NICs to work in Dell D series laptops (these are the intel centrino wireless cards). This is using Windows2000.
the MAC of the mini-PCI nic is enabled on the WLAN.
I have the latest drivers and ProSet utility, and the Card will associate with the access point but not authenticate. After like 5 minutes I get a message "802.1x failed challenge, check user credentials" my username and password are correct.
One search of wi-fi forums found a similar problem which was resolved by changing framing to rfc1042, which our AP's are already set at.
I am far from a cisco network wizard. I am wondering if this type of problem is common and may have a straightforward solution. I think our IS team has kind of said forget it and mandated cisco aironet 350 pcmcia cards, and it just kind of bugs me to have a laptop with internal wireless tha supposedly supports LEAP and not be able to use it.
