  Then your NAS is broken.  Buy a real NAS that supports VLAN assignment.

  We told you what the result was: We don't know.  Go read your NAS
documentation.  If it doesn't say, it's because your NAS is broken.

  This is in the FAQ, and in the comments in eap.conf.

  Windows doesn't do that.  It just stops doing EAP.

  Please stop trying to figure it out.  Believe what we're saying.
We've seen your situation hundreds of times.  It's nothing new.

  Exactly.  Buy a device that is *documented* as doing VLAN assignment.

  Sorry.  Buy a real NAS that works.  You're wasting your time trying to
make a broken NAS do VLAN assignment.
