Yes; but this is highly driver-specific as each driver has to implement
correct WPA2/ieee802.1x support. The best drivers for WPA right now are
the Intel Pro/Wireless ones.
If you're not using the IPW drivers, you may wish to verify that your
card works with wpa_supplicant
(http://hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant/ ). When in doubt, give NM a
try and see if it works. It should.
Now I've installed NM in ubuntu 6.06 and I'm not able to connect to my
wpa2-encrypted network. I have reports that my card works with
wpa_supplicant. I'm using the windows driver of my card with ndiswrapper.
Any idea what to do ?
