I seriously doubt that they have even heard of wpa_supplicant... :( (but I 
will try anyway)

And I live in a world where the vast majority of Wi-Fi access points 
"officially support" just Windows (maybe MacOS as well), and I (and others) 
are still able to use their services with our BSD and Linux laptops,  
Because, while the web-based interface is clunky, it is at least OS-agnostic 
(all you need is a web browser) and it could be a lot worse.  I had just 
wondered if anyone had found a way around the Connection Manager requirement 
for 802.1x.  

Thanks - Peter
