Hello there,
i just got my new macbook air.
I have updated Leopard to 10.5.2 and now i face the following issue.

At my office they use WPA2/AES with pre shared keys (windows enviroment)

I select Wpa2 enterprise as the security and the problem is that when i go to the advanced and 802.1X in authentication there is no AES.

in the windows pcs they dont use passwords to join the same network but they use a preshared key.

There is a dhcp that gives ip addresses in that wireless network.

So the airport utility finds the network but it says authentication and then disconnects.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue ?

When you choose WPA2 Enterprise you should have a text entry field for password that you can put your pre-shared key in.

You should be able to leave 802.1X configuration as automatic.

If this isn't the case can you post a screen shot?
