    Hey guys and gals,

    All of this 1.1.3 iPhone version update talk has got me thinking. Do you think they will finally add 802.1x capability to the touch/iPhone? Also, if not with 1.1.3 do you think maybe at MacWorld?

    Thanks!

    I don't know how Gear Live got 1.1.3 update. I guess that they would be developer or not. but I don't trust them even they showed us some new features. first of all icons doesn't need to shake when they move from place to place.

    we will see the real one at macworld 2008. plus, Apple doesn't allow pre-release version to public.

    What do you mean 802.11? I mean touch already has 802.11 a, b, g. I guess you are talking about 802.11n right?
    if it is, touch requires new chip inside. So new upgrade touch will have it possibly.

    If you're talking about 802.11n, I really doubt that it would happen. Look at how long it took for mobile devices to go from b to g. Also, 802.11n is still a draft version so I don't think that it would be the best idea as it might not be compatible with everything out there.

    Heh, no, he means 802.1x, its an authentication protocol (iirc) for wifi.

    Its not just for wireless networks. Typically an authentication server is employed, for example we used Radius servers which upon authentication allow (or deny) access to certain network resources. My Juniper has support although I've never had a need to use it.
