SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You are running a Windows Vista-based computer.
  • You use an independent hardware vendor (IHV) profile that implements a third-party Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) method to establish a wireless connection.
In this scenario, you may be unable to connect to a wireless network.

Note This problem does not occur on a Windows XP-based computer.

CAUSE

When Windows Vista uses an IHV profile, a third-party EAP method notifies the EAPHost component that the EAP method must save the new configuration. However, because of an error in the EAPHost component, the profile may not save the configuration as expected.
