I am using the native Windows 7 wireless supplicant for connecting to my AP that's using WPA2-Enterprise. I validated that my connection works fine and 802.1X authentication succeeds with the back-end RADIUS server.
My AP supports redundant RADIUS servers so if the primary server is offline, then the secondary server is tried after about 40 seconds. The issue I am seeing is that when my primary RADIUS server is offline, the Windows 7 supplicant gives up trying to authenticate and de-authenticates shortly before my AP would start using the secondary RADIUS server. If I try to connect again, the same issue occurs. I have successfully used Funk Odyssey supplicant in this scenario, as it has a slightly longer retry mechanism.
Does Windows 7 support any kind of configurable retry mechanism for wireless 802.1X authentication? Perhaps a registry setting...?
Thanks in advance,
