As a network guy I do not deal with problems on the desktop, it's one of
those few things that I am permitted not to accept by default fault for.
Also, bear in mind I did say "we do not use PEAP and never have done",
asking me to help you with a PEAP problem is unlikely to get you very
My solution is to use TTLS (with SecureW2) as it makes XP, Vista and
Win7 all behave identically, and that's what I like. The author has
done all the ball busting so I don't have to. :)

Debian provide a bunch of ISO's and network install options for their OS
