Here. I forget everything off the top of my head because I use
autocompletion, but I use wpa_supplicant and wpa_cli (or wpa_gui)
directly, so I don't have tools lie to me.

Honestly, I usually care so little for the user case of desktop
environments that put three layers of molasses on top of just the
unadulterated tools that I haven't bothered to figure the molasses out.

You sure about that? Is it just a EAP-PEAP network with MSCHAPv2 inner
auth? That's what Carleton has, and I can make it work trivially.

I'm pretty darn sure wpa_supplicant supports more than any other out
there. Are you using a wrapper GUI?
