PEAP wi-fi ubuntu 8.10 Intrrepid, a work around

There is a documented bug with ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid regarding the use of PEAP, which is a encryption protocol for wireless.

The following will allow you to get around the problem

1 – use version 0 of PEAP
2- deactivate and reactivate the wireless subsystems/kernel modules as follows:
modprobe -r  b43 ssb wl
modprobe b43
modprobe ssb
