XV6700 and Aironet Secured Wireless network

XV6700 and Aironet Secured Wireless network

Has anyone tried to setup a verizon xv6700 phone to work on a secured 802.11 wifi network.  

Our network is setup as such that we have multiple ssid's setup on their respective vlans.  I just recently received a demo phone from verizon and need to set this up to work on our network.  Because of PCI requirements, I need to ensure that the connection is secured and encrypted.  We will be using the phone for two purposes.  One to allow the pda to update things such as email, meeting notices etc. the second is to use the ip softphone to place and receive calls etc.

Problem..verizon provides very little documentation on what their phones will support.  802.1x is available but only with PEAP, and last time I checked windows mobile 5 has a problem with certificates..so I would prefer to use some other method for authenticating a user by using a corporate login id and password etc.

Any help would be great.

You might get a better answer by putting this in the wireless forum.

However, This phone only support WiFi 802.11b. You might want to try putting you AP into "b" mode only as some devices do not like mixed mode wireless.

Let us know how you go.
