Are you sure your Windows client supports this? If the client doesn't 
support it, then no matter what you do on the server, you will  never 
make it work.

I think it is commonly done through DHCP. You authenticate (which 
appears to be working), and then your DHCP traffic gets passed to the 
DHCP server which gives you all that information.
