Please note these steps are only for use on the 10.5.X (Leopard) system. This should work on 10.5.2 but it is highly recommended you upgrade to the newest 10.5.4 OS. Sometimes Apple has trouble picking up new Enterprise Wireless Network Settings. Be sure to clear the keychain of any old tsunami login information. Also, toggling the Airport on and off sometimes will force new settings to take action.  If this does not work, restarting the computer after the settings are all in place is known to be effective. As a last resort, you can go back to the user profile and also check LEAP, save the profile, and restart. This should authenticate using LEAP as a backup option. If all these steps fail, your more than welcome to contact the Support Center at 330-972-6888 or visit us at Bierce Library Room 52C.
