Cisco Aironet Major Software Release Version 2.30 for Windows CE

Cisco Systems® is pleased to announce that Cisco® Aironet® client utilities (Release 2.30) and drivers (Release 2.30) for Windows CE .NET 4.0, 4.1, and Windows CE 3.0 are now available for Cisco Aironet 350 and 340 Series PCMCIA and LMC 802.11b wireless LAN client adapters.

This new release delivers the following capabilities:

Support for the most popular Windows CE versions—Windows CE 3.0 (Pocket PC 2002) and Windows CE .NET 4.0, 4.1 are supported with this new release.

Integration of utilities—Previous Windows CE versions had seven separate utilities. Six of these utilities have now been integrated under a single user interface in the Aironet Client Utility for enhanced usability.

IEEE 802.1X PEAP/OTP support—Support for Cisco Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) supplicant, which includes user authentication using one-time password (OTP), is now provided for Windows CE 3.0 (Pocket PC 2002) and Windows CE .NET 4.0, 4.1.

Note: Windows CE .NET requires a Microsoft IEEE 802.1X bug fix release in order to support PEAP. This Microsoft bug fix release is targeted for release with Windows CE .NET 4.2. Microsoft's estimated delivery date for this release is the second quarter of the 2003 calendar year.

Aironet Client Utility Profile Manager enhancements—Users can now create and modify up to eight different user profiles. This enhancement allows users to create profiles for different locations, each of which requires different configuration settings.

Cisco LEAP support—Cisco LEAP support is provided for Windows CE .NET 4.0, 4.1 with continued Cisco LEAP support for Windows CE 3.0.

Ability to save Cisco LEAP username and password—Users can now configure their client adapter to use either temporary or saved Cisco LEAP credentials.

Ability to periodically scan for a better access point—The client adapter now has the ability to periodically scan for a better access point with the same Service Set Identifier (SSID) if the signal strength falls below 50 percent. This feature can be enabled or disabled.

Four caveats resolved—Please read the Release Notes for additional information about resolved and unresolved caveats for this release.

Windows CE 2.11 devices are not supported in this release.
