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.
