802.1x Cert based wifi authentication not working

Sebastian 1 Reputation point

So to preface the issue, I am setting up 3 offices on each their own domain with cert based wifi. So I have my first office/domain setup and working without any issues. So I have my settings and steps down for the most part. Im not stuck setting up office 2 and coming across a weird error in the CAPI2 event logs that I need some help on.

  • System

And on the connecting laptop, I am getting the same type of error. I have confirmed my certificates are setup identical, along with my NPS. I cannot for the life of me find anything related to this and need some wisdom from my peers on this one.

And from the client side, I get the following error in the WLAN Autoconfig when attempting to connect

    Based on your situation, the network trace collection is necessary to analyze the issue deeply.

    However, analysis of network trace is beyond our forum support level. So after discussion with my colleagues, we suggest you open a case with Microsoft where more in-depth investigation can be done so that you would get a more satisfying explanation and solution to this issue.

    You may find phone number for your region accordingly from the link below:


    Hope my answer will help you. Thanks!
