WPA2 with ATT Connection Manager for Air Card
Hi, just wondering if anyone was able to get WPA2 working on the ATT Connection Manger.  I have the ACM installed on Vista, and i was able to access my work's wi-fi network, which is WPA2 encrypted, but now with ACM i can't connect anymore.  The software just hangs on 'Performing WPA2 Authentication (enterprise)'. and then says failed.  Any help!?  Thanks!

It's not ACM's fault, it's Windows.  I use WPA2 at home with ACM and it initially did not work, I actually had the exact same issue you are having.  Turns out that Windows doesn't natively support WPA2.  I was able to resolve it by downloading a hotfix from MS.
 
Vista:  Sorry, I don't have a hotfix but I was able to connect after running Windows Update.
