Have you tried enabling tracing on the Microsoft supplicant in order to
get more information on what it could be doing? You can do this by
setting EnableFileTracing to 1 in WinXP registry key
and the log file will be written to %windir%\tracing\eapol.log. In
addition to EAPOL tracing, there are also other related tracing areas in
WinXP that could provide more information on what exactly is happening.
Based on your description, there is not much that could be observed
outside the supplicant, so taking a look at Windows tracing logs could
be the easiest way of learning more.
