Hello SVLUG,<br>The company I work for is allowing me to use Linux on my work machine, though it is very much a windows shop. Nearly everything works nicely, even evolution + exchange, but I have had trouble connecting to their wireless network. I'm using a Dell Latitude D630 with a Broadcom 4312 wireless chipset, and I need to connect to a network using Cisco's EAP-PEAP protocol. Does anyone know if this is possible using the bcm43xx kernel driver? I've seen reports of it working with ndiswrapper, but I haven't seen anything conclusive regarding the free driver, which I would prefer to use.
<br><br>In my current setup, when I run wpa_supplicant, I get sporadic disconnection notices during the authentication process. Sometimes I receive the "Phase 2 authentication completed successfully" message before a disconnection occurs, and sometimes it happens earlier. I never get far enough to access the network.
<br><br>FYI, I'm not using network-manager because of known issues with nm+bcm43xx+wpa_supplicant.<br><br>-Richard<br><br><br>PS I greatly enjoyed removing the "Windows Vista" sticker from my laptop :-)<br>
