All,

From time to time we have students and faculty dropping by our Help Desk saying that the wireless does not work. Often, the users' machines can not connect to our secure or open networks. It would be nice to have a backup option for these users and also prove that they are having a hardware issue.

I'm looking for a recommendation on a Mac wireless USB adapter that can perform 802.1X EAP-PEAP?

I've tried a couple of wireless USB adapters that support 802.1X… unfortunately the fine print did not state "for Windows only."

Thanks for any help that you can offer – it is much appreciated!

-Mike

Also I will need a couple of 4124s

never mind wrong email

I would look at Amazon they seem to have a number of USB adapters for Mac in all price ranges

Hi Harry,

Thanks for the reply. I'm just worried if I randomly pick one on Amazon that I'll go through another round of RMAs. It would be real nice if someone has used one in their production environments.

Thanks!
