MCBookAire: Enterprise WEP Leap? Not easy

Well after two days of playing with McBa at work, I haven’t been able to get it to connect to the corporate LAN. (It is permitted security policy wise!) But, if the McBookAir supports Enterprise WEP with LEAP, it’s not obvious to me.

    I have to write this from my PC @ work so maybe the names are a little off…but..

    Set up the connection as WPA-Enterprise, entering the SSID and any username/password (Active directory we have here and it works) with upn

    Then you go and edit the configuration through system settings and there is a second option for authentication type…deslect everything and select LEAP…then enter the LEAP username and passowrd, in my case thats my AD user credentials…works for me…

    Getting internet access through the shite proxy I have is another matter…

    Never got it to work. Used a wire connect.

    Well, I just got a MacBookPro (my first Mac since 1991 – LC series) and it will not connect to our wireless systems at work. I am the Network Admin and am in charge of the wireless network as well. We have a Cisco WLAN using 1100AP’s and they do not broadcast — I have read elsewhere that this is part of the problem.

    Anyway, I have tried all plausible connections and still cannot get it to connect. All I can determine is that it will simply not work, which is a very bad thing for my MacBook. If you have found anything that will help, please post it so that I can get over this stumbling block and don’t have to offload my MacBook on someone else or return it.

    Thanks; you’ve given me some things to try when I get back on site later next week. Muchos gracias. I’d move on to other tests; like Patton, identify and bypass. Don’t like problems.

    I’ve spent days with the same trouble with my MBA at work – I’m unable to connect it to my Cisco LEAP network. I CAN connect using BootCamp and utility that I downloaded from the Broadcom site.

    I just encountered a possible solution posted on another web site:
    Instead of specifying LEAP upfront, instead use WPA enterprise, with TLS. I’m at home now, so I can’t test it, but when I start to configure WPA enterprise, there is indeed a dropdown list from which you can choose Cisco LEAP – looks potentially promising.
