Issues with Wireless Connection in RC1, does not authenticate on client side for some reason

    My wireless connection is not functional in Vista RC1. It uses a Windows
    2003 IAS and WPA-Enterprise and was working fine in XP SP2 before I upgraded
    to Vista RC1. The Event logs on the DC/IAS machine shows successful user
    and machine authentication via certificates, but the RC1 does not want to
    accept it. It continues to show "Attempting to authenticate." Use of
    tcpdump shows successful RADIUS authentication, so I am at a loss as to why
    authentication does not complete. Successful user authentications are
    filling up my event logs on the DC/IAS!

    In case that was the next question, this a Windows 2003 R2 Active Directory
    Domain. Wireless WPA-AES-Enterprise worked fine with XP SP2, and have
    existing XP SP2 boxes in the domain with wireless connection that
    authenticate fine. The Windows 2003 R2 DC/IAS shows MANY successful IAS
    authenticationEvent ID's in system event log, which denotes access granted.
    No errors in the Windows Vista Event logs either.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
