Oh cool! This is one thing I will definitely be putting through it's  
paces as I do a lot of roaming between wifi networks - some of which  
require EAP-TTLS which is authed against RADIUS (like the office) and  
others like home that is WEP free and if you're lucky will give you a  
public IP address (I like the idea of giving away net access!).
