As per title, anyone know if this can be done? It's a WPA2-Enterprise signal with PEAP username/password authentication. Unfortunately PE Network Manager only supports passphrase. I've tried various third-party WiFi utilities but haven't been able to get them working.

 

Any ideas?

Sure, lots of 'em ideas. :)

 

Point is whether they are any good. :w00t: :ph34r:

 

See if you can experiment with this:

and replicate it.

The method seems promising but definitely needs a review and some clarifications.

The automatic wireless configuration in WinPE is probably missing components to handle a login process.

Wonko's pointer may put you on the right track to add this components but it may not be an easy path :)

 

In short, you are a missing a wireless supplicant.

 

I remember "wpa supplicant" being a popular piece of software.

It is a multi platform opensource software but you may have a hard time to find the latest builds for windows.

Cheers for the replies guys - I've moved town so unfortunately no longer have a WPA2-enterprise signal to work with! If/when I move back I'll take another look at this.
