Report says authentication was successful when it really wasn't?

In a follow-up to previous question I asked where I was getting minimal results on an authenticated scan, I ran a PCAP scan to get some further details as to what might be causing the problem. The PCAP file shows no attempts by the scanner to use the admin credentials in the authentication record, yet the report says that authentication was successful.

 

I'm assuming at this point that something is wrong with authentication and that's why I'm getting minimal results. I am wondering if anyone has dealt with this before, or if anyone has ideas as to why the scanner says authentication is successful when it actually is not?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!
