    I don't think this solution fixes LEAP, only PEAP.

    Is there some reason I can't drag the .kext file into the Extensions folder? I keep getting a message that the folder "Extensions" can't be modified.

    This did not work on a UK spec MacBook Pro - in fact, now my MacBook does not boot *at all*.

    Works great with my TTLS 802.1X connection too. It took a couple of tries at authentication through Internet Connect the first time, but it works fine now even after sleep, which didn't work automatically even on my Powerbook. This is a life-saver as I don't have to carry my AirPort Express around work as I go from conference room to conference room anymore.

    Thanks!

    Tried this and It just politly told me to restart every time at startup. Just got it back up and running after a reinstall.
    Seems like this is not a good idea for european users.

    Anyways, worth a try and now I know why Apple hasn't realased this solution

    I wonder if I have a Eurospec MBP? I experienced the same problem as the two overseas users in this thread, where it tells me to restart in several languages. I've seen that screen before, on a G3 iBook with a fried logic board, so I nearly had a heart attack. Before that started, I was getting kernel panics as well. I suppose this fix is just not for me!

    hello....

    so i would like to partake in the rejoicing for the solving of the peap problem. however before i do so i will need some help. a couple things, 1) for backing up the driver, do i just make a copy of it and paste it in a folder somewhere else?
    2) how do i open up a terminal? 3) the folder in extensions, is it called folder or do i create a folder?


    k well if anyone would be so kind as to make the instructions dumb proof that would be greatly appreciated and i will sing your praises as well as the person who started the post to everyone i meet. how's that for networking.

    Yeah, exactly the same problem here. When I tried the "fix" on my MacBook 1.83 Core Duo, it couldn't boot at all anymore, only showing a grey screen telling me to reboot everytime I turned on my machine.

    No wireless network for me ;(

    Fix works at Samford. Thanks! You're the man!!

    I backed up the driver on a flash drive...just copy/paste;
    drag the new one into the folder and click replace;
    "terminal" is in utilities in your application folder
    open it, copy/paste that line from the fix, press enter, enter your password (it wont show characters), press enter, close out of terminal;
    restart;
    clear out any old PEAP certificates that didnt work out of your keychain and clear cache;
    set up a fresh 802.1x connection

    hope that helps

    has anyone tried this on a Duo iMac to see if it fixes any of our wireless issues?

    My problem was that even though I had made a backup of the old driver I didn't have the know-how to be able to replace it through terminal when I started up on the MacOS X installation DVD.

    Maybe not an issue if you have an extra harddrive you can boot up on.

    This did not work on my macbook pro. The system came back up and complained that the driver was not usable. Wireless was disabled. I switched back to the old driver (1.1) without problems. I still have issues connecting to PEAP networks, though I think they are configuration issues in the networking stack or on those networks.

    Yeah, I've tried it on the iMac Core Duo and while it doesn't cause any additional problems it doesn't solve the wireless problems that we have been experiencing. The wireless is still unusable with WPA and the regular slow ping responses still exist.

    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.
