What exactly do you mean with not using dynamic WEP? The configuration
you use with wpa_supplicant is set to use dynamic WEP and the AP seems
to also be trying to use dynamic WEP..

peaplabel=1 must not be used with FreeRADIUS.

If you really want to disable dynamic WEP, you would need to add
eapol_flags=0 line into the network block. Please note that you will
also need to configure the AP not to use this.

I would guess that this happens because of the peaplabel=1 parameter. If
removing that line does not fix this, please send full debug log from
wpa_supplicant (-dd on command line).
