Cisco WPA2-PEAP IAS/AD does not authenticate right away after a reboot

I have Cisco access points with just G radios running the following version Cisco IOS Software, C1200 Software (C1200-K9W7-M), Version


I have laptops running XP sp2 with all the patches that I could find

I?m using the Intel 3945abg wireless Adapters and the Proset/wireless manager with the admin tool kit

I have 2 Cisco access points setup for primary and secondary WDS

I have a SSID setup to do WPA2-PEAP

I authenticate again Microsoft IAS and AD

In general it works except for the following

I will be doing machine authentication against IAS/AD when they boot up and before the windows login prompt, which will be just like if they are wired into our network. This way, group policy?s, at machine level will get applied, network scans and etc can take place.

It works great if a device has never been connected to the network or the time out flushes the cache authenticated/credentials from the WDS access point. Or if you reapply the Intel Proset/wireless profile before a reboot.

Otherwise if on the network and do a reboot and let it sit at the (wait until credentials are flushed) windows login prompt and wait until you can ping the device (ping device ?t), the following is what you get on the access point log. Windows does not support EAPOL-Stop or PEAP-Stop because of denial of service attacks, which would solve this problem if windows would issue these commands during a reboot.

The following is the logs from cisco access point if I just wait for the flush timer

-) Is there a reg key for Intel or Microsoft that will help in this issue?

-) Is it a configuration problem?

-) is there even a way to fix this issue
