For added security, you should set the CA certificate field to
/etc/ssl/certs/Equifax_Secure_CA.pem or you'll be subject to a
man-in-the-middle attack. It's still possible to MITM with that cert,
but harder. Ubuntu 10.04 seems to have it installed by default, but if
you don't have the certificate you can download a copy from
and copy it into /etc/ssl/certs or wherever. Wireless internet will work
without that setting, but it might warn you every so often about
selecting a CA certificate, and with that setting it is less likely to
connect to a rogue access point.
Also, in some places you may need the PEAP version set to "0" or it
won't work. I don't know why it works in some places but not others
without that, but that's my personal experience.
Other than that, the settings look good to me.
