NPS + CA 802.1x Wireless Authentication

Hello All,

Hopefully someone on here will be able to help me with this problem. Here is the scenario: We are converting our private wireless network from WPA2-PSK to WPA2 Enterprise. We were having issues with security using the old method. What we would like to do is have all of the Company owned devices join the private WiFi network. We would like to use certificates, and certificates only. That is no one enters their Active Directory credentials to authenticate to WiFi, it is completely machine based certificates. We are using Ubiquiti Unifi as our wireless. I have setup the network as RADIUS and entered the appropriate address and shared secret. Our Windows 2008 R2 server has AD DS, AD CS, and NPS installed. All of the domain machines and the server have the appropriate certificates, and auto-enrollment is enabled. The problem is I keep getting the error "The client could not be authenticated because the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Type cannot be processed by the server." Right now, I have only attempted to connect Windows domain computers and this is the error (I still need to get iPad's and Android devices on this network!). Is anyone able to point me in the right direction to get this working? Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist!
