Hi

Has anybody had experience using the D-Link Airplus Utility on a Windows
2000 machine to connect to a WPA/TKIP/PEAP network? I have a DWL-G122
which works fine in Windows XP using the Wireless Zero Configuration
Service but as Windows 2000 does not include this, I need to use the
D-Link software. It looks as is if the software tries to connect but never
succeeds although it did appear to work once just after I installed the
drivers and disconnected straight away. Can anyone advise what might be
the problem?

Thanks

Ben Thompson

Is your 802.1x service set to "Automatic" and started in win 2000.

I am not using the win2000 802.1x service, I am using the D-Link Airplus
Ultility.

I think I may have found out a little bit more though :-
We are using usernames and realms in the format username@realm and this is
what seems to confuse the D-Link client. I set up a test RADIUS
server which did not use realms and I got it to work OK. When I do use
realms, my RADIUS server complains that the mschapv2 response is
incorrect. Could it be that the D-Link 802.1x supplicant does not handle
usernames with an @ symbol?

I have probably misread the doc but I was under the impression that the
802.1x service needed to be started even though you are using a 3rd
party utility.

I am told this doc applies to SP4 as well.
