On my XO that's currently running 8.2.0 on the nand I can reliably
connect to my home AP which is explicitly configured for WAP (due to
issues with dodgy wifi drivers on my eeepc not working with it when
WPA2 is enabled) but can't connect to the Cisco AP in the office
(which my eeepc can so I assume its only WAP not WAP2) which is
interesting. I haven't tried a 8.2.1 build yet but if someone wants me
to do some testing just let me know what build number you want tested.
