MSM760 - AD Authentication - strange issue

Hi everyone,


I have a rather odd issue. My msm760 is configured to provide AD authentication. I have a VSC that is not access controlled and a MSM430 AP.


When I try to connect to my WLAN it fails and within my logs (Windows 7) I get the message 'Explicit EAP failure received'.


The strange thing is, I login to the same machine as a test user and that connects fine. Immediately after this I log out and log back in as me and then it also connects fine. When I reboot my machine and try to login again as myself, it comes up with the error message as above and does not connect me to the WLAN.


This is what I get from my eventvwr


Reason: Explicit Eap failure received
Error: 0x2b3
EAP Reason: 0x2b3
EAP Root cause String:
EAP Error: 0x80420112


Now that, apparently, means that the login credentials are incorrect, but how can they be? I logout and log back is as my test uer and it works, then log back in as myself and it works.


Something strange going on, could anyone help me please?

Could it be something as simple as specifying the domain name within the wireless settings on the pc? EX, domainname\username
