As described in <http://www.fangxiang.tk/2015/05/11/gentoo-downgrade-package/> there are several possible solutions, the best one being that the wireless network operator upgrades their authentication server to a version with fewer bugs. Obviously we can't all do this so it would be nice to have a more graceful fallback...

Would you attach logs so that we can see what was happening?
# journalctl -b 0 -u NetworkManager
# journalctl -b 0 -u wpa_supplicant

Comment 7 David Barton 2015-08-12 16:35:57 UTC
Logs added as requested - it's almost certainly a server side problem due to a buggy TLS 1.2 implementation (various references are available on the web, a buggy Open Radius server or something like that); it seems particularly common at universities... Sadly I'm not at liberty to change anything server side.
