Wow, this whole thing is more complicated than I thought, but here's what you have to do to connect to an 802.1X network. These instructions are incomplete because the settings will depend on your own network.
1) Download the iPhone Configuration Utility to your computer from here: http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...formacosx.html
2) Setup a new profile by clicking on "Configuration Profiles" on the left pane then clicking "New"
3) Name the network under the "General" tab
4) Under the "WiFi" tab, you need to put in your network SSID, security type, protocols etc. You can try to get this information from you computer's setup for this network if you have it. Otherwise you might need to talk to your IT people.
5) Under the "Credentials" tab, you have to add your network's certificates. You cannot find them for some reason unless you drag them from you keychain and copy to you desktop (do a spotlight search for "keychain" to find this folder). After you add the certificate(s), go back to "WiFi", go down and click the "Trust" button. You should see the certificate, check the box.
6) Okay, here's the weird part. Once you've created the profile properly, e-mail it (or post it on a server with a proper MIME type) and open the profile attachment on your iPhone to install it. From there you should be able to connect.
