Can you run

 radiusd -X | tee logfile

then connect the laptop to the network, and then post the logfile
to the list? Otherwise we've got nothing really to go on.

Long shot, have you got the default EAP type (eap.conf) configured
to the same on that you're using? Shouldn't cause this, but all I
can think of without seeing any debug output.
