Dell Laptops, WPA Enterprise and 64 bit Windows

Having issues with many Dell model laptops not able to connect to wifi on wpa enterprise, under 64 bit Windows 7.

Some models are apparently identical to others that work correctly.  Same drivers/cards etc.

Anyone out there had this issue and resolved it, or think of something I can try?

Thanks in anticipation

What model wireless card is installed? Are you using the Windows Wireless default connection tool, intel wireless tool? What is the configuration on your wireless controller for security policies? Do you have AES enabled on both WPA and WPA2 by chance? Need more details.

Hi,

I believe what it is connecting to, is irrelevant at this stage given the following information...
