Windows 10 802.1X timers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have some questions about 802.1X implementation in Windows 10.

    - what is the timer for 802.1X timeout and how can i change it?

    - how many times will Windows 10 try to re-authenticate if 802.X timeout occurs?

    - where can i see logs for authentication attempts?


    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    By default, the Re-authentication timeout is configured for 30 mins (or 1800 secs).

    For more information:

  • Hello

    No, the issue wan't solved. It is really strange that such simple thing as 802.1X timers can't be found in Microsoft documentation.
