EAP Cisco (EAP-FAST)".
(vii) Click on "Properties".
(viii) Select Data Encryption as "WEP".(this depends on

what encrytion you are tetsing)
(ix) Select "Use Saved User Name and Password" option

and enter the credentials.
(Check other options like SSO,Automatically prompt for username and manually Prompt for username also)
(x) Uncheck the option "Allow Automatic PAC provisioning

for This Profile"
(xi) Import the PAC created and save it under "Public

store"
(xii) Enter the password "password" to import the PAC.
(xiii) Click "OK" "Next" and save/apply the profile.


Manual PAC provisioning under Private store - (Applicable only for Atheros adapter. In the case of Intel adapter, PAC will be automatically stored in Public store)

- Perform the same steps again except that in step 2 (xi) ,
import the PAC and save it under " Private" store.

Deleting PAC manually

- Edit the profile created and delete the PAC using "delete"
option and make sure PAC is deleted .
  • Make sure that the manual PAC provisioning is working as expected.

4.1 Profile without any PAC details (Auto Provision profiles) are treated as pre-logon incapable .These profiles are not attempted at prelogon .
4.2 Profiles which have the PAC details can connect at prelogon only when the following conditions are satisfied:
a. The PAC authority in the profile matches with that of the authenticating server
b. The PAC has already been provisioned for the Eap-Fast user.

5. Limitations for EAP-FAST connectivity in Atheros Adapters.

5.1 When a new PAC is provisioned, Pac details is not updated in the EAP FAST profile. After successful EAP FAST profile connection
user has to edit the profile and select the correct pac to save it in the profile. (Refer CMVC#71269 for more details)
Restriction
1. Even "Allow all users of this system to create and apply loation profiles" Global settings option check box is checked, limited user account can not modify or create the setting for TCP/IP settings or security settings of local driver share, firewall settings due to Windows security protection. Such setting is used with Windows default settings. Default is not checked.
2. Global settings can be only modified by the user when the logon privilege is administrator privilege.
3. The global settings option "Disable Adhoc connection type option in wireless LAN profiles" is not applicable, if the user create the profile using WIndows wireless LAN property window.
4. Profile disconnects when user change wireless security type of 802.1x peap to LEAP or vice versa
(Reference: ECR112851, W7:Profile disconnect when change wireless security type of 802.1x)
Information
1. When "Allow all users of this system to create and apply loation profiles" check box is checked, it allows user to create the location profiles and enables location switching regardless of the windows logon privilege (administrator or limited users).
2. Wireless profiles will be listed in the upper part of the profile list and the Ethernet profiles will be displayed at the lower part of the location profile list on "Automatic switching profile priority window". Due to the faster speed, the Ethernet profiles have higher priority than the wireless profiles.
3. Static IP address wireless profile will be listed in automtic location switching, as per the new design. However, static IP address ethernet profile will not be listed in automatic location switching.
4. ThinkPad 11b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter II has 1x2 antennas - 1 antenna for transmitter (Tx) and 2 antennas for receiver (Rx), and the maximum theoretical speed is 150Mbps (Tx) / 300Mbps (Rx) in the 802.11n mode. However, the current Realtek driver displays Tx speed as design. So it displays 150Mbps in the 802.11n mode even though the Rx speed is 300Mbps.
Solution : Display the Rx speed, instead of the Tx speed in the Realtek WLAN driver.
