I am currently porting XSupplicant over to the Moko. I am about half
way done. Once that is done, PEAP will be available at a minimum.
WEP/WPA/WPA2 are going to rely on the driver supporting it.
I plan to have the engine ported before the end of the month (if I have
the time). Then I'll need to create a Moko-ified UI to configure it.
As long as there's the Equifax security certificate it'll support our
network. It would also be a huge move for cell phone wifi as it would be
the only phone that works with our network.
