Default OS 5.0, more WiFi EAP options??

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone running one of the OS 5.0 betas check to see if RIM is supporting any additional enterprise WiFi EAP security types... Specifically EAP-TTLS with PAP as the Inner Link security method.

Right now (4.XX) RIM only supports MS-CHAPv2 as the inner link method with TTLS, which is leaving out a HUGE market of practically every University user and many large organizations using a non-Microsoft directory infrastructure. Every other major PDA OS supports TTLS-PAP Many others have had this issue:

I'm running 5.0.0.100 on my Bold and unfortunately there is no option for PAP in the Inner link security drop down.

There is only EAP-MS-CHAP v2 and MS-CHAP v2
