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!

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.5)

    Oh and just to clarify, I got this driver off an Intel Mac Mini

    I figured it was just a matter of time before someone decided to try the mini driver. I installed it, and will report back with any progress. Thanks for sharing it.

    Can someone who is having disconnects and slow speeds check to see if this driver makes any difference? Thanks

    Hi,

    I just tried it and I still get the same error.

    All the new kexts are loaded properly.

    I'll keep playing with it today, but so far no love here, with our LEAP network, at least.

    works! my college campus (Baylor) uses PEAP and my MacBook connects perfectly. Thanks!

    Thanks sooooo much! I followed the directions and my MBP 1.8 is a happy connecting to PEAP network camper.

    There are 2 things:

    In System Profiles:

    1) When I look at the Airport card, it now shows firmware version 0.1.16, where before it showed 0.1.12. I guess the new driver also load new firmware on the card.

    2) When I look at Extensions the AirPortAtheros5424 shows 1.0.1 which is the newer version, and the IO80211Family shows 1.1.1 which is also the newer version, both are dated 17/02/06, 4 days later then the other kexts on the MBP.

    3) The AirPortAtheros5424 shows Dependencies: Incomplete with Dependency Errors: com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family: No valid version of this dependency can be found.

    Is this the same as the people who have it working?

    Anyone know how to correct it?

    thanks

    Wow! Works like a champ. Seems like a fairly easy fix (basically updating the AirPort Card firmare), and, given that the firmware was available - makes you wonder why no support folks were able to direct us a solution.

    THANKS!

    Did not work on my LEAP network (using MacBook Pro). Airport card does show 1.16 firmware now though. Maybe I can fool LEAP somehow...
  • myrddincox Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)
    Yep - Leo. I get this same information, including the bit about dependency errors. But my wireless connection is working great via PEAP auth.

    I show the same as you. My modification did not solve my LEAP network problems.

    i can confirm the imac driver does indeed fix the peap issue with macbook pro. i don't like messing with the /System/Library/Extensions folder but in this case it gives our clients the access they need and expect. i tar'd the original kext file so i can restore. i am concerned however that the firmware level on the airport card was raised from 0.1.12 to 0.1.46 - no time to test if putting the old driver back restores firmware version, afraid to try, content with functionality even if it involves risk.

    Hi,

    I can confirm, that if you put the old kext back the firmware version of the card will revert back to 0.1.12

    Really? I didn't expect that part, that's excellent news, thanks!
