You have the supplicant incorrectly configured. 

You can also try in radius.conf:

Subject: freeradius against AD authentication not working

Running Freeradius v1.1.1 on a RHEL 4 box and trying to authenticate the WiFi users against windows 2003 active directory using EAP-MSCHAPv2. I was able to join the linux box to windows domain successfully and able to read the users and groups from AD. I have configured the windows XP supplicant with  root.der certificate and EAP-MSCHAPv2. When i try to connect to access point, it takes the local machine name default instead of asking for username and password.
Does i missed anything ? Here is my radius log file.
bash3.0#radiusd -X -A
