To check the connection, you can initiate a request from a wireless device to the network.
Use the ME103 Activity Log to monitor the initiation of the 802.1x wireless session.
During the authentication processes, there is a session timeout. If either the
authenticator or the client does not respond with the proper data to the other side in 30
seconds, the authentication fails. If this happens, you should physically remove the
wireless adapter from your computer, and re-insert it to start the authentication again. In
addition, if the ME103 is rebooted, you should physically remove the wireless adapter
from your computer and re-insert it to start the authentication again.
