    So this begs the question. Will this come in the fashion of an Airport update that will update the firmware and drivers for all of us MBP users? Are new MBPs being shipped with the new firmware/drivers or are they still being shipped with what the rest of us have?

    I received another MBP this week for a friend and it had the old driver. I'm thinking this can be sent as an independent (from 10.4.6) Airport update.

    I certainly hope it comes soon, this is getting to be a real drag on productivity.

    Hey guys, I figured out how to fix LEAP/PEAP issues (with at least TTLS/PAP but I assume this fix works for everything).

    Here's what you do.

    1) Download the 1.1.1 version of the driver (we have 1.1.0) here:
    http://chrisnolan.org/IO80211Family.kext.zip

    2) Back up your copy of the driver which is found in /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext

    3) Drag the new driver into the /System/Library/Extensions/ folder

    4) Open up a terminal

    5) Type:

    sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/

    6) Restart

    7) Enjoy!

    No go. I have a LEAP network and MBP. I followed your instructions without a hitch. No change in behavior. It claims to have an error joining the network.

    Well, it looks like it's mostly LEAP users who are still having problems. (I've not noticed if this helped any of them.) It seems to have worked for everybody responding with PEAP problems.

    It did work for me on my school's PEAP network, so thanks a ton!!

    No joy for me either, we are on a LEAP network, however, in network information, it reported an IP that was not 169.x.x.x, it was a 144.x.x.x, so perhaps it is a step in the right direction.

    At least you are authenticating. I am thinking that this will require a firmware update and not just a driver update. LEAP is still not working for me.

    Yeah, I just tried this at my office (LEAP) and got a fat load of nothing.

    Success at my office (PEAP) in this form:

    Network Name: <name>
    Wireless Security: 802.1X WEP
    User Name: <domain>\<userID>
    Password:<password>
    802.1X Configuration: Automatic

    I just tried that on my LEAP network and it will start to authenticate, only gets the self assigned 169 address, then says that the WPA authentication failed. At least this is getting closer to working.

    I received my MBP 1.83 on Thurs, May 30th... still running the old firmware. I cannot connect to my School's LEAP 802.1x network either.

    Just installed 10.4.6, it let me authenticate but NO IP ADDRESS, and the firmware is 1.1.7 though. Well they are getting there.
