Sort of a bane of Android's existence here, but with partial support in 1.6 and full GUI support in 2.0, hopefully not for much longer.
In the meantime, the Behold 2's configuration, just like the Galaxy (go figure), is different than other Android devices you may read about.
1. The Behold 2 uses a bcm_supp.conf file rather than a wpa_supplicant.conf file, even though both start up with the wpa_supplicant binary
2. Even with a proper setup in the bcm_supp.conf file, there seems to be an issue with browsing/connecting to a WPA-EAP network. With a WPA-EAP network in the config file, the WPA discovery process hangs and times out. The system is recoverable however by simply replacing the old bcm_supp.conf file or removing the WPA-EAP network from the file and restarting.
Unfortunately, in the couple days of research that I've been able to do on the subject, at the moment, it doesn't seem possible to reliably connect to an Enterprise Wireless system. Hopefully, in the coming days and weeks, someone will discover the issue and come up with a patch or custom ROM to address the problem.
Until then, it looks like it's no Wireless at the office for me.
