PEAP username/domain greyed out

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

Hello,

I am using MS-XP Prof. w/ SP2, along with Cisco 4100 WLAN controller and
Cisco Secure ACS.
I have setup PEAP on XP along with WPA, and I do not use client
certificates.

I have wireless WPA/PEAP/Active directory authentication working if a user
logs onto the Windows domain using a wireless client XP laptop.

IHowever, if a user logs onto the local laptop instead of the domain, then
he/she is unable to authenticate against the domain for the wireless
connection.
In the right hand side task bar a small pop shows that authentication has
failed, when I double click on the pop up, a username/password/domain window
pop up.
However, both the username and domain options are greyed out, the username
shows my local username with which I am logged onto the laptop, and the
domain
shows the name of the local laptop and is greyed out.

How do I set an option to specify the local username/domain?

Thank you!

    When the username and domain boxes are greyed out, that means the password
    failed authentication against the RADIUS server. You are being prompted for
    a different password.

    It sounds like the wireless profile is configured to automatically use your
    logon credentials. When you logon to the system with a local computer user,
    then those will be the credentials sent out on the authentication attempt.
    That is why you see the local machine name in the "domain" box.

    To successfully authenticate, you will have to modify the connection profile
    to manually prompt for credentials when you are using a local user account.

    START > RUN > NCPA.CPL
    this will open the network connections page
    RIGHT-CLICK on your wireless adapter
    select "properties"
    this will open the property sheet for your wireless adapter
    select the "Wireless Networks" tab
    LEFT-CLICK the name of the wireless network
    select the "edit" button just below
    this will open the property sheet for the preferred network
    select the "Authentication" tab
    select the "properties" button just below the "EAP TYPE" drop down box
    select the "configure" button
    uncheck the box for "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password
    (and domain if any)"
    click "OK" to close the dialogue
    click "OK" to close Protected EAP Properties
    click "OK" to close the property sheet for your preferred network
    click "OK" to close the network connection properties
