We have a system set up where the username and password for Novell are the same as the username and password for wireless authentication. When the 802.1x option is used on the Novell client, will it work in this senario? When I enable the option, the client will authenticate the wireless and authenticate Novell and start logging in but then it will take several minutes for the scripts to start and they will fail with lots of 8801 errors. When the computer finally finishes booting, the wireless won't work.

If I log into the workstation and then authenticate on the big red N, the only problem is that sometimes I have to authenticate twice. Once for the wireless to work and again for Novell to login.

I appreciate any insight into this.
