    :-( I had hoped this would be fixed. Is anyone else who uses a 802.1X network still getting the following behaviour?

    1) Log in to 802.1X network - network authenticates

    2) Send Mac to Sleep

    3) Wake Mac up

    4) Network does not resume connection to 802.1X network. It fails to authenticate and self-assigns an IP address - so the network connection fails.

    Turning Airport Off and On again (the oldest trick in the book) forces a reauthentication and the 802.1X network reconnects.

    Anyone else (still) getting this?

    Nope. Didn't happen before and is not happening now with 10.5.3 installed. Sounds more like a problem with your ISP rather than a "bug".

    It's not just me!

    This has been a widely reported problem. Anyone else?
