When a user tries to connect to your network by using a wireless connection, and when that user's connection request is authenticated and authorized by Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Internet Authentication Service (IAS), you may experience all the following symptoms:
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
Note The state attribute is a value that permits both systems to keep track of the connection conversation. IAS provides new state information to each connected session. The access point should not send state information during the initial connection request. The access point should only return the state information that it receives from IAS. However, in this scenario, IAS should reject a connection request that contains state information instead of ignoring this request. This would permit the connection to be reestablished more quickly than if the connection attempt has to time out.
