  It's always an issue with the client, WiFi, or AP.  It's not an issue
with FreeRADIUS.

  Why?  All of the EAP is driven by the client.

  You won't see it in a tcpdump.  The *non* continuance of the EAP
session is what FreeRADIUS is complaining about.  tcpdump won't show you
any more.

  Look on the client and/or the AP for the problem.
