Setting midd_secure up as a WPA2 Enterprise network has been fairly successful but I have no idea in what version of Vista this works/does not work. You should be able to do so by setting up a network manually and editing the settings of that manually set up network.
== Mac OSX 10.3 (Panther) ==
* 10.3 (Panther) is not compatible with midd_secure. Also, some iBook G4s are not compatible with midd_secure, regardless of the OS.
* Delete midd_secure and midd_unplugged entries in System Preferences => Network => Airport => Airport tab
* Delete 802.1X profiles in System Preferences => Network => Airport => 802.1X tab
* Delete desertcat certificate in Keychain Access
* Delete midd_secure entry in Keychain Access
* Uninstall PeerGuardian (if it's installed, it's a 3rd party app)
* Try starting the mac in safe boot and try the wireless there.

==== Basic connection on OSX 10.4 ====
# Click on the airport icon.
# Select midd_secure.
# Enter username and password.
# Do not check the "Remember my password in my keychain" box.
# Hit OK.
# A window with the title "Verify Certificate" will appear. Click "Continue".
==== Troubleshooting on OSX 10.4 ====
Sometimes OSX fails to connect to midd_secure because its "remembered" settings become corrupted and conflict with midd_secure settings. This generally shows up as a "WPA error". Use the following steps to remove all midd_secure-related settings on the computer, then you can try connecting "cleanly".
First, remove all wireless network connection settings:
# Go to network connect
:You can do this by clicking on the airport icon on the MacOS X menu and selecting "Open Internet Connect..."
# Go to the the "802.1X" tab.
# On the configuration option, use the drop-down menu to select "Edit Configurations..."
# Remove all previously saved connection settings.
# Hit OK and close Internet Connect.
After those steps, remove saved passwords from Keychain:
# Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" folder
:While in finder you may use, apple-shift-U or go->Utilities, to navigate to the utilities folder
# Fire up "Keychain Access"
# Look for an "oncila.middlebury.edu" certificate and delete it
# Delete anything that says "midd_secure" or "WPA Midd_secure" on it. "Basically anything that you removed in the earlier step."
# Close the Keychain Access application.
After these steps, try connecting to Midd_secure as directed above. You should be able to connect now.
== Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) ==
General troubleshooting steps:
# Have customer login to his/her account. Have customer nearby during the procedure.
# Open System Preferences => Network
# Select Airport from the list on the left, then click the Advanced button in the lower right corner
# Under the airport tab, delete midd_secure
# Under the 802.1x tab delete any entries relating to midd_secure
# Click the OK button in the lower right corner, then click the Apply button in the lower right corner
# Open Keychain Access (Finder => Go => Utilities)
# Select login from the list on the left, click on "All Items" in the list on the left
# Delete any keychain entries that have midd_secure in the name.
# Delete any keychain entries that have '''desertcat''' or '''oncilla''' in the name<br>
# Restart
# Connect to midd_unplugged, make sure that works
# From the airport menu select midd_secure, enter username and password. It's recommended that you UNCHECK "remember this network"
Other tips:
* midd_secure sometimes breaks because Mac OS X remembers the settings incorrectly, or remembers the customer's OLD password. If you don't let Mac OS X save the settings for midd_secure, then it won't break in the future.
