But yeah I agree with Peter.

SD might be internal, so maybe crack one open?

I guess worst case scenario is it's logging to a ramdisk to save the SD
card, but you can still probably tweak the syslog settings.

Or if the entire file system is on the SD, look for wpa_supplicant.conf
and you'll be able to configure the supplicant directly.

They rarely intercede in the EAP conversation, but I guess it's possible.
