Coonnecting to networks with a username and paswword

I’m trying to put together an imp system in a university lab . The university has a campus wide enterprise setup with usernames and passwords to log on and frowns on individual access points. Any chance that future firmware will allow connecting to a network with a username and password?

As in a landing page or as in 802.1x authentication?

We’re looking at 802.1x, but it’s not in the near future as it’s a rather large undertaking. Until then, if you have very friendly network admins they might be able to open something up for the imp mac address range (0c:2a:69:xx:xx:xx) and port number (31314) for outbound connections.

It’s 802.1x authentication. Thanks I’ll talk to IT and see if they can associate my mac with an outbound connection.
