I don't understand wifi totally, but my university has a wireless network. When I asked admin the if I can connet to the network using a palm device he said the palm doesn't support PEAP authentication.

Is this the case with other wifi hotspots such as in starbucks and airports? Cost of GPRS use if fairly expensive here in New Zealand (cost $10 per MB), but in the university it only cost $0.07 per MB for internet access.
