802.1X networks from OS X 10.5

Is it possible to use the 802.1X networks from OS X 10.5?  At 
previous IETFs this worked fine, by selecting WPA2 Enterprise, but 
now I get "authentication failed".  The instructions at 
do not show WPA2 Enterprise, so perhaps it now requires a mechanism 
which 10.5 doesn't support?

It is possible to use the 802.1X networks on 10.5. And you are correct that you should be using WPA2 Enterprise, though WPA Enterprise should work as well. Please make sure that your EAP methods *DO NOT* include TLS. And, as was stated on the list the username and password are both "ietf".

Please let us know if this works for you. If you still have trouble, please stop by the help desk in Chez Louis and we help sort it out. Let them know you have an open ticket.

As reported by Randy via the 80-attendees mailing list:

I deleted the networks from OS X's network preferences and re-added
them, and now all is good.


Marking as fixed
