Microsoft IAS Patch to Correct Very Slow RADIUS/802.1X Authentication?

    We are running Microsoft IAS (on top of Windows Server 2003) as our
    RADIUS server to authenticate wireless/802.11 connections.

    A colleague has informed me that there is a patch available that fixes
    an intermittent problem where machines sometimes take a very long time
    to authenticate via 802.1X/EAP.

    As I understand things, this patch (hotfix?) will eventually come out
    for free in a service pack but is currently available for $250.

    We need the patch now and are thus willing to pay the $250. However,
    we have been unable to re-locate the patch (and/or knowledgebase
    article) on Microsoft's web site, and the colleague in question is
    temporarily out of the country.

    Can anyone point us in the right direction?

    Will do--thanks for the offer of help Steve. It looks like we need
    patch #883659, however, and another colleague has in fact obtained it
    this morning.
