Your configuration file enables all EAP methods and the method
negotiation ends up using EAP-MSCHAPv2 (kind of silly for the server to
allow this, but well, anyway). This is not a good choice for generating
PMK for 4-way handshake and you should add eap=PEAP into the network
block if you are trying to use PEAP. In addition, unless you are
absolutely sure that the authentication server is using the new PEAP
label, I would suggest removing phase1="peaplabel=1" because it is
likely going to end up breaking the connection once you resolve the
first issue.
