We need to support WPA2 on the login screen

Upstream bug:


In the new world order, the MIT ssid as we know it will be vanishing, and MIT SECURE will be renamed to MIT. The MIT GUEST network will continue to exist, but we already know that blocks AFS, etc. and is not useful to use. So, going forward, we'll need to find some clever way to bring up WPA2 at the boot screen. I haven't tested it yet, so it may be as simple as "Use the NM applet and it just works".

I don't have a timeline on this yet, so the milestone is tentative. I'm attempting to get more info.

As part of this, we should also document what doesn't work on MIT GUEST, and
a) ask to have those protocols enabled
b) suck it up.

The CW is that the MIT SSID will cease to exist in IAP '12, but that has not been confirmed.
