Check the man page: http://linux.die.net/man/5/wpa_supplicant.conf Got lots of examples....what have you tried so far?

If you plan to use wireless networking a lot you can save yourself a lot of time and hassles by choosing a distribution that has good wifi support in the first place. I have PCLinuxOS 2009.1 with KDE on my Acer Aspire One. Once I added all of the KDE applications that showed up when I searched their package manager for wifi.

Now it is as easy, or easier in come cases, to connect to a wireless network with my Acer using PCLinuxOS as when using Windows. I don't have to edit wpa supplicant configuration files. I don't have to edit wlan configuration files. I just left click on the wifi icon in the task bar and select a network that appears in the list of available wireless networks in range of the machine.

That's the way it should be. Select the right distribution and desktop environment and that's the way it will be for you.

network={
ssid="networkSSID"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
auth_alg=PEAP
eap=LEAP
identity="username"
password="password"
}

thanks for the reply. this is what i have right now minus header, ssid, username, and password. we are in the process of changing wireless configurations, but we need to setup some new equipment before that project will be finished.
