Description of problem:
I can't connect to the local WPA2 Enterprise secured WIFI with wpa_supplicant 2.4. Downgrading to 2.3 fixes the problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a WPA2 Enterprise WIFI connection with NetworkManager
2. Try to connect
Connection to WIFI fails.
Connection to WIFI works.
Downgrading to 2.3-3 fixes the problem immediately.
I've found another reference to the problem:
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

journalctl log for NetworkManager

journalctl log for wpa_supplicant

wpa_supplicant's own log
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.
