Does KT work with WPA2 Enterprise encrypted Wi-Fi

Hi everyone! So I just bought my new KT.
But I could not figure out how to connect it to the Wi-Fi network at my work.
Like most institutions, we also use WPA2-Enterprise security which requires
login user ID and password. Is it possible to use the KT with this kind of network? Thanks.

According to the Touch user manual: "This eReader does not support networks secured with the WPA Enterprise Protocol."

I just connected to a WPA network right now and it worked.
I'm pretty sure my home network is WPA2 and it worked.
I assume a firmware update has added this maybe?

There are two version of WPA2; Personal and Enterprise, and it's more than likely that you are using personal at home; Enterprise does authentication of network users through a server, which I believe (and of course, I can again be wrong), requires a domain to be present.
