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
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).
