NICs compatible with LEAP

So far I know that the aironet,airport, and xircom creditcard adapters are the only nics that support LEAP so far. I have also heard that Lucent cards support it as well. Can anyone confirm this? Anyone know of any other cards that can LEAP?

I got this from the TAC today:

"The only client cards I know of that support LEAP is our Cisco Aironet cards and Apple's Airport cards. "

Good luck

Any NIC with the Intersil/PRISM chipset (Compaq, Fujitsu on-board) can use the Odyssey client from Funk Software and get seamless LEAP authentication. Open and Require EAP Authentication settings must be activated on the Access Point for this to work.

That would be EAP not LEAP

There is subtle differences between the 2.

LEAP is a Cisco protocol NOT standards based. EAP is standards based as defined under the 802.1x standard.

The previous post is correct only Cisco and the Airport cards support LEAP but many cards support EAP
