I want to connect to my school network through a hotspot called utcpers, with encryption, using WPA2-Enterprise.

I'm using a Broadcom 43224AGN 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 wi-fi adapter.

Using Windows 7 and Ubuntu, I can connect with the same credentials and settings described here, but Windows 8 fails to connect to this network.

The tracing logs are available here.

Any help will be very welcome!

I fixed the problem by installing the windows 7 driver. It's a Broadcom 43224AGN 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 Wi-Fi Adapter – sohaibafifi Sep 26 '12 at 14:09
    
It would be appreciated if you would add that as an answer, to help other people that come along – soandos Sep 27 '12 at 0:08

After countless hours with the IT department at my Uni and countless hours of remote control with the boys at MS, no one had a fix. Then I found an interesting article that talked about compatibility of some routers' software with current Windows 8 software.

Since our Unis are unlikely to update the software for the network, downgrade your drivers to Windows 7 drivers. If you upgrade from Windows 8, this should be really easy (just rollback the driver). If not, it's still possible by downloading a driver that works (they are out there). I am running a 2010 MacBook Pro with Windows 8 using Boot Camp and I was able to find a Windows 7 driver that worked. After you have that driver, restart, get your network config in and connect. Unfortunately I have to log in every time my computer turns on or awakens from sleep, but hey, it's a connection, right?
