Even more weird, we have had the same issue lately with one controller
model, and not the other. We were using the same config on the client,
on the server, and the same certs.
I also tend to blame the client tho, maybe EAP is now more strict on the
server side? If you can point us a doc to enable the EAP debug under
windows, I am sure many people (even myself) would be glad to troubleshoot.
