wpa_supplicant IEEE802.1X questions

I am new to this list so please forgive me if I am posting something wrong.
There are two questions in my mind about the way wpa_supplicant works:
Is it possible to have two networks managed by wpa_supplicant where the first
one is wired and secured by IEEE 802.1X and the second one is a WPA secured
wireless connection? I am asking that because i think ap_scan is needed to set
to "0" for IEEE 802.1X authentication while for wireless it is needed to set
I manage to get it to work with the
below /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf , later running wpa_cli -i eth0
(the wired connection), and setting ap_scan to 0 manually. But it would be
nice to have the connection up automatically.
I am running Gentoo with the following /etc/conf.d/net :
modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
The topology of the wired connection above is as follows:
a) switch (at the university, not reachable for me)
b) ethernet-cable (coming out of the wall ;) )
c) switch (personal D-Link 10/100 fast ethernet model: des-1005d)
e) my computer, eventually some more computers
Everything works OK if i connect my PC directly to b) but i like to have it
connected to my own switch (at e)), because the cable coming out of the wall
is too short and i would like to have some other computers connected, too.
The question is: Does this work at all? (If you need more information, let me
know, i just don't know what exactly to tell you)
Any help is very much appreciated.
