Using Host-Based EAP

If you want to use a temporary username and password (which must be entered whenever a LEAP
profile is selected, the client adapter is ejected and reinserted, or the Windows CE device is reset in
order to authenticate and gain access to the network), go to
If you want to use a saved username and password (which do not need to be entered whenever a
LEAP profile is selected, the client adapter is ejected and reinserted, or the Windows CE device is

The Windows CE device must be a PPC 2002 device.
Support for EAP-TLS and PEAP authentication will be available for Windows CE .NET
devices in a future release.
Client adapters must support WEP, and firmware version 5.02.19 or greater is recommended.
Access points to which your client adapter will attempt to authenticate must use the following
firmware versions or greater: 11.23T (340 and 350 series access points), 12.2(4)JA (1100 series
access points), or 11.54T (1200 series access points).
All necessary infrastructure devices (for example, access points, servers, gateways, user databases,
etc.) must be properly configured for the authentication type you plan to enable on the client.
