Do you know which authentication server is used in this network? Could
you please capture the EAPOL frames between the authenticator (AP) and
supplicant, e.g., with Ethereal from the client? Is anything else
printed after this log excerpt or is it just followed by a timeout?

That is quite "useful" comment.. This breaks the network security by
opening it for man-in-the-middle attacks.. Anyway, this should not be
related to the problem you are seeing since server certificate
validation would happen only after the ServerHello message is received
