Is it in his case for the use at a public cafe possible to have people 
use the connection without encryption so they can reach the login 
webpage and after login they get the passphase to use the connection 
with encryption? I tried this with Windows XP and 802.1X but I didn't 
succeed because Windows worked only with encrypted broadcast and unicast 
frames and that would not allow anyone to reach the login page withou 
knowing the broadcast-key.
