Do you see any errors? How does it fail?

First I recommend you to try different settings from N810, especially
the ones in advanced dialog. For example, I have heard cases of some
Radius servers which require some special username and such.

But if you don't get it working, I recommend you to file a bug. But it
just might be a some configuration issue in N810, WLAN EAP is a tricky

These guys are hacking os2007 kernel to work with os2008 rootfs (or

and definitely not supported. Your problem is not related to this in
anyway, don't worry.
