    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?).

    I am looking for someone to answer this as well. The question is 3 yrs old but perhaps someone has an idea how to go forth importing all my old connections to my new computer
