This is normally a result of EAP timeout on the NAS, rather than 
anything else. If you can increase this, you may also need to increase 
"timer_expire" in the "eap" module config, but be aware of the 
implications (more memory used).

You may find this doesn't help - Windows might have its own timeout.
