The error code 66 means:

Authentication failed. Either the client computer attempted to use an authentication method that is not enabled on the matching network policy or the client computer attempted to authenticate as Guest, but guest authentication is not enabled. To resolve this issue, ensure that all client computers are configured to use one or more authentication methods that are allowed by matching network policies.

I would suggest taking a look at the following:

Hi,

thanks. do I need to use certificate?

For PEAP on the MS server, you would want to create a certificate. Even if the clients are setup to not validate the cert.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for the support. already working after your suggestion.

I think this is typically a problem were the NPS policy doesn't have the correct authentication method configured.

Have you had any luck making this work?

Thanks
