WPA2 Enterprise LAN issues -- possible fix

One of our podcast listeners and chatroom attendees (and I'm sorry, I forgot your name!) asked about this one.

Happen to be lucky enough to know a pretty savvy network engineer, who is also an Android geek who pointed me in the right direction just a few days ago about this one.

Depending on your specific network, it might not work. But I promise it won't be any worse than it is now :)

Thanks to the good folks at Search Networking, and thanks Dave for pointing me to it.

Thanks for slogging this out, AmsDiane! I too had the apk file in the payload directory and got the same error. All is good now.

If you use kies, will it let you do your software updates on it from samsung's website? I uninstalled kies from my computer because it said my device was not supported or something like that.

I have, FINALLY, got it to work on my Vista 64 bit machine, downloaded the USB drivers for 64-bit systems here, removed the Samsung Drivers first, of course. The USB connection is rock solid and instant now that I switched to a USB port at the back of my machine. It was always hit or miss, mostly miss, with the front ports. Removed SWM v1 and replaced with v1.1beta which turned out to be a good thing since v1 always gave me a fail message it seems it did put the .apk on my phone, whether it was all or part I don't know since I did not try it, but, since v1.1 has the UPDATE check box it overwrote the installed .apk and now AndroidWifi Manger, it's .apk and the PC part work fine and I'm able to sync and back up my phone, since Kies has never worked for me.

Thanks everyone for the information that helped me to trouble shoot everything and getting SWM to work!

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box. the error log net framework 4 is installed
