Hi, I just got a Jornada 720 and a netgear MA401 wireless card. Unfortunately, my college internet uses 802.1x wireless internet. Is there literally ANY way I can access 802.1x with my Jornada 720? The university also has VPN. Could I access that instead? Or maybe even get linux on my Jornada so I could get a 802.1x client on there? If there's any way at all to connect to the network here, I'd greatly appreciate any information, because honestly, without the internet, my Jornada's scrap metal. Thanks so much!

Yeah, I get your point. That's probably EduROAM or sth similar. Well, I doubt if there are any drivers to support it under WinCE but I guess that 720degrees (I don't know how far does it support WLAN) or Jlime (once it is being ported to 720) could do the job (with 802.1x drivers crosscompiled.)

Oh, man. Well, thanks! The problem is I'm VERY new to this stuff. I've just been using Windows all my life, but I think I'm going to have to get into linux now. Anyone know of a place that explains how to load Linux onto my Jornada 720, not to mention just explains how to use linux at all?

720 Degrees Linux would be a good place to start. Their site is here:

Well... You could start from using some distro, you may want to start with a shell account or LiveCD to make sure you don't mess things too much or just pick a distribution (now Ubuntu is trendy amongs beginners) and read manuals
No other way, sorry
Good luck.
