I just discovered I can access a corporate wifi at work but I need a LEAP/PEAP client since is uses a Microsoft authentication protocol. Does anyone have any experiences or ideas where I can get a LEAP/PEAP client for Puppy? All help is always appreciated! -Mark

Does Puppy 3.x support LEAP now? It would rock my world if I could use my laptop at school and access the wifi connections in class. Thanks. -Mark

The utility which handles WPA wifi encryption in Puppy: wpa_supplicant, already supports LEAP/PEAP.
In theory, all you should need to do is modify the configuration file, /etc/wpa_supplicant2.conf

UPDATE 2012
In modern puppies, the WPA configuration file is either -
/etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles/wpa_supplicant.conf
or
/etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles/wpa_supplicant2.conf

Configuration details are here -
http://hostap.epitest.fi/gitweb/gitweb.cgi?p=hostap.git;a=blob_plain;f=wpa_supplicant/README
Scroll down to the "Configuration file" section. I suggest you compare the appropriate configuration details as suggested in that README with Puppy's existing /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file, and just modify the existing file where you see differences.

Once this has been configured, it may be possible to use Puppy's Network Wizard by selecting "WPA2", but I advise against using the wizard. If anything goes wrong, you won't know it. Make the connection by running the wpa_supplicant command manually, as explained in PART 2 of the wifi HOWTO -
