Android: Connect to an enterprise LAN via LEAP/802.1X

If you work in an environment where Wifi connectivity is through LEAP/PEAP/802.1X and you have a rooted Android phone, you can use the following mechanism:

Modify the file /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf and add your Wifi APN as follows:

network={
ssid=”your_ssid”
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
auth_alg=OPEN SHARED LEAP
eap=LEAP
identity=”your_username”
password=”your_password”
}

This will connect perfectly on my HTC Dream and should work on any other Android platform as well. Only thing missing now is the proxy support (Google – how can you miss this????)
