View Full Version : Importing network connections from SL to Lion.

Jul 22, 2011, 11:05 PM
When I re-installed Snow Leopard, the Migration Assistant gave me the option of transferring my network connections (all those saved wi-fi passwords for everywhere I go).

I did a clean install of Lion, but the Lion Migration Assistant gave me no such option.

So, I booted up my old SL drive clone and "exported" the network connections to a file. Then I tried to "import" those into Lion's System Preferences > Network pane.

I get the following error message:
The 8021x configurations could not be imported because a 8021x service has not been set up in Network preferences.

Any ideas what this means? How do I set up an 8021x service? Or, how do I go about importing all my wi-fi passwords (copying over Library files?).
