In the process of finding this I found my certificate expired in 2007
I'll have to fix that but none of the other machines had a problem
I find it weird that my embedded device with less complete stuff
(uclibc instead of glibc) has a wpa_supplicant that checks where as my
ubuntu laptop had no issues connecting. So it would be nice for
connecting to imperfect networks that you know the cert is going to be
off anyways.
