I'm trying to connect to the wireless network at my college using OS X 10.6.2, however it's not as straight forward as usual... The network is hidden, although I know to 'Join other network' and type in the SSID of the network and then set the authentication method to WPA-Enterprise. However, this is where I run into a problem..

To connect, I need to 'configure encryption as AES', which I'm not sure how to do on OS X. Furthermore, after signing in with my college ID I am required to 'Use the domain name domain name' and 'configure your browser to use the college proxy servers on port 123

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated as it's important that I log on to the network for work etc.

Thanks very much for your time.
