hostap does not provide access to the services

OK here is a more about the configuration. i have created certificates with the openSSL software and transfered them to my windows XP SP1 computer and installed them. the installation seems flawless since i followed the procedures that are written on the how-to guides of the web pages. the attached file is the hostapd conf file. the bridging functionality of the system should work since i can see the packets forwarded from client to the radius server and vice versa. 

for the authentication process;  i can see that the radius server sends the access-accept packets to the client after the mutual transfer of the EAL messages. the log of radius shows the client is authenticated. 

my concern is still with the AP's prviding service. i think there should be something wrong that the access point couldn't have the client contact with the network.

thanks for the help..

It would be helpful if you could also include the AP configuration and
describe how the client was configured (and which software it is using).
It looked like IEEE 802.1X authentication succeeded and the station was
authorized. However, I did not see any EAPOL-Key messages sent after
that one for dynamic WEP keys. Was the AP configured to send these? Was
the client expecting to get these? For example, Microsoft Supplicant
will deauthenticate if it is configured for dynamic WEP keys and it does
not receive those within five seconds from the authentication..
