    So I know that this new software update is supposed to allow wireless connection on 802.1x which is the connection used by most college campuses.

    I haven't figured out how to use it though. I don't see the option on there.

    Any help please?

    Check with your campus IT dept. I'm at Univ. of Texas and they had a special page you could go to and it would install the network profile for me. Very simple.

    but isn't there supposed to be a way to do it without installing something? I mean it should work right off the new iphone software right?

    Some networks require log-in information before they let you go anywhere. Namely, university Wi-Fi connections.

    Read: 802.1x

    I thought I remembered hearing it would be included as well!

    So... has anybody else been having this issue? I know like 50% of the apple community is in college! haha.

    Where is the 802.1x!?
