I use WPA Enterprise on a daily basis with ndiswrapper.  On any given day
(except Sundays :) ) I'll switch between a WPA Enterprise network, no
connection, WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal, and Open.  The only thing I notice
is that there's a delay recognizing that the network has disappeared, and a
similar delay recognizing that there's a new network in range.  That
doesn't seem to depend on where I'm going to though, even if I'm connected
and a new network appears it takes a minute for NM to add it to the list.

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least
until we've
finished building it.
