Hi Kalle,
Thank you for your reply - please see my responses inline.

It claims that it is an authentication failure, and the limited log digging
that I have been able to do (infrastructure side) suggests that the
credentials are being sent garbled.

I have tried about every combination I can imagine, including the 'prompt
for password' option, which does indeed prompt for uname password, but then
fails - I am positive that I am entering them correctly, yet have failed
multiple times.

will do - later this week, should be able to do some more work a bit later
this week with RADIUS logs and such.

The one (perhaps) important thing is that I did require some crypto modules
added in (to angstrom 2007.1 prerelease), I don't know if they are in maemo
by default.
full write up here (including all modules info):

ok, thanks.

I do like the graphical interface for maemo wireless, but I also like the
flexibility of wpa_supplicant - is it possible to add wpa_supplicant in? 
Things like setting the adapter to promiscuous mode to pick up any AP it
can find are actually quite useful sometimes.

Thank you again for the reply.
