    Hi, im the lucky owner of a new HTC Hero. I sure like the phone, i only got one problem.

    At my college, we have wifi with encryption. But i cant find out how to access the internet.

    This is our encrytion:

    [*]IEEE 802.1x
    [*]PEAP
    [*]MS-CHAP-V2

    Any idea on how i can apply these settings? I have a username and password.

    Thank you! Vetle

    [menu] -> settings -> wi-fi settings

    Either select the college network from the list and enter the encryption key when prompted, or choose 'add wi-fi network' if the SSID is hidden and fill in the form.

    The 802.1x piece concerns me. That sounds like it requires an X.509 certificate to verify authorized hardware on the network...

    This wont work, i have to configure it so i can use my username and password! And it anit possible to choose the PEAP encryption, or whatever it is!

    Perihelion: Hmm.. The "computer-guy" at school told me that some others with HTC had manage to get it up and going. I doubt that they were running Android though. I almost managed to do it with a friends Windows HTC, but when i was about to finish, i suddenly had to start over again and i ran out of time :(. Weird if HTC/ Google didnt included this alternative even though HTC had it on earlier phones!

    I have the configuration running on my Vista x64 laptop if it could be any help. Sorry for my spelling mistakes, Norwegian guy :p

    But thanks for replies!

    Were the HTC phones that worked Windows Mobile by any chance? I could see that making the difference.
