Mobile 6.1 Home LAN Authentication

by mnewsome - 12/27/09 8:23 AM

Would like my cell phone to connect to the internet through my wireless home network [Cisco/Linksys WRV 200 business class router]

On my cell phone, I am at the prompt for 'EAP' type: The options are:

-Smart Card or Certificate

Looking for guidance on the pros/cons of these options. Additionally, I would ask about where the certificates come from. It is my understanding that the self generated certificates are not truly secure. As of this writing,and regarless of authentication, the status message turns from 'connecting' to 'available'. The wireless router has its own configuration of
WPA2 with AES authentication. Much thanks in advance for an informed response.
