Wrong. You're very confused about how this work.

Your original mail states you want to do EAP-PEAP+MS-CHAP for wireless auth.

Unless your LDAP directory contains the plaintext password or the NT 
hash, what you want to do is impossible. If it does contain the 
plaintext or NT hashes, correct configuration will make it work. Does it?

Also, you've failed to register this several times, but I'll repeat it. 
DO NOT SET Auth-Type. At all. To anything. In common use, there's no 
need to set it, and in fact it can actively break things.
