I am having kinda the same issue, although it is similar to the peap issue thread.

We use peap with CiscoSecure ACS.

In the CiscoSecure ACS Failed Attempts Reports I am getting this message
'EAP-TLS or PEAP authentication failed during SSL handshake'

From what i have found this is saying the certificate the bb is using is invalid.
Following the instructions from the bb manual...
I copy the certificate off the acs server and install it on my computer.
I startup Certificate Sync and the certificate is showing up under 'Others People's Certificate'.

I checked it and synched. In the bb wifi setup going through the lists of certificates I can not find my acs server cert anywhere. I tried using the intermediate cert Thawte SGC CA it doesn't work.
I dont know why my acs server cert is not displaying on the bb. Certificate Sync is showing its installed. It did install the intermediate cert that i tried above during the same synch.

On the bb in the wifi diagnostics i am getting a 'Network deauthenicated client' message.

i also tried selecting the Class 3 Public Primary cert which is what we set the laptops to and that doesn't work either.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you are conecting your PC to the WLAN and authenticating via PEAP, you will have the certificates in your browser store.
