Netgear FWG11vPv2, can't get WPA / WPA2 to work

Posts: n/a
I also posted this to alt.internet.wireless and apologize if you are
seeing this more than once.

I'm trying to setup either WPA or (preferably) WPA2 on a Netgear
FWG11Pv2, and am having no luck. I have done all of the following:

a. upgraded the firmware to V1.2_04NA

b. tried WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK, and both work

c. confirmed that the RADIUS server (IAS on Windows Server 2003 R2
Ent.) does work

d. confirmed that traffic, including RADIUS exchanges (I used a utility
called NTRadPing to test this), can get from the client to the
AP to
the server and back (when the FWG11Pv2 and client are using

e. read and reread the usless instructions in the Netgear
reference manual for the FWG11Pv2 (dated May 2005)

When I configure the FWG11vP2 for either WPA or WPA2 (Enterprise) and
try to connect, it starts OK, the signal is strong, and my WinXP Pro
SP2 laptop prompts me for credentials (Windows Zero Config is set to
NOT use Windows credentials), but I am never authenticated and let onto
the network. I checked the system log in Event Viewer on the server,
but nothing from IAS appears there--no errors, nothing. I know this
RADIUS server is working; I'm using it right now with an old, flaky
Cisco 1120 AP with WPA.

It looks as though the FWG11Pv2 simply isn't passing any RADIUS
packets to the RADIUS server. Any suggestions???? Thanks.
