I posted a problem with connecting to the AP at work, but the log I 
posted resulted in someone saying my AP is disconnecting me immediately. 
  I don't actually have access to the AP or any debug info...so I can 
only show you the config I have which is "supposed" to work based on the 
examples...

I inferred EAP-TLS based on the comments and the example, and the fact 
that I must use an Equifax certificate to authenticate.  I can't see 
other details on the protocol used by Windows (I don't know if the 
eapol_flag should be 3, 2 or 1, but I tried them all).

Config file:
-----------
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
network={
	ssid="dyndns"
	#scan_ssid=1
	proto=WPA
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
	pairwise=TKIP
	group=TKIP
	psk="xxxx"
}

# IEEE 802.1X/EAPOL with dynamically generated WEP keys (i.e., no WPA) using
# EAP-TLS for authentication and key generation; require both unicast and
# broadcast WEP keys.
network={
	ssid="IBM"
	scan_ssid=1
	key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
	eap=TLS
	identity="jssteven at us.ibm.com"
	ca_cert="/etc/cert/ibmrootca.pem"
	client_cert="/etc/cert/jeffscert.cer"
	private_key="/etc/cert/jeffskey.pem"
	private_key_passwd="xxxx"
	eapol_flags=3
}
