ICS and 802.1x Phase 2 Authentication

There is a well known bug on ICS which makes impossible to connect to a wifi network requiring phase 2 authentication (like 802.1x). See:

 

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=15631

 

Some of the vendors have provided patches for their devices. It would be nice to hear the Lenovo position on this.

 

I think that this is an major issue as many enterprise networks use this type of encryption. It would be great if Lenovo can add a patch before releasing ICS and leaving us without wifi at work.

Re: ICS and 802.1x Phase 2 Authentication

The link you gave describes a bug report for 2.3.x versions of Android, not ICS. Does this same flaw exist in 4.0 versions of Android as well?

I'm posting this from my 3.x TPT tablet, connected to my Corp network through PEAP + MSCHAP authentication, and have never had problems. Nor with my 2.3.4/2.3.5 Android Moto DX2, either.

Re: ICS and 802.1x Phase 2 Authentication

The same bug exists in ICS (at the end of the link you will find a lot users running ICS and not able to connect to PEAP+MSCHAP networks).

 

I am experiencing the same problem with my Samsung GSII phone. I upgraded to ICS and now I can't connect to networks with PEAP + MSCHAP authentication. I am worried that it will happen the same with my tablet...

Re: ICS and 802.1x Phase 2 Authentication

Now that they have started rolling out ICS, anyone can confirm this bug?

Re: ICS and 802.1x Phase 2 Authentication: no problem here

We have phase 2 authentication here (a friend's 2.x tablet can't connect due to the bug)

and I can connect after OTA3 without any problems.
