3Com X-Jack PC Card Problem

I suspect I'm probably out of luck on this but I thought I'd ask in case I'm missing something. I have a 3CRPAG175 X-Jack PC Card in my laptop and have been very happy with it so far. However I'm currently doing work for a company whose wireless network uses LEAP authentication and CKIP data encryption and need to be able to connect to their network from my laptop. I see LEAP as an option if I select "Use WEP 802.1x (Strong)" in the 3Com Wireless Profile setup, but I don't see any option for CKIP data encryption. Their IT guy says 3Com cards just won't do this and so won't work with their wireless network as it's currently configured. He says I'll have to buy a Cisco or Intel card. Is this true or is there any way I can get my 3Com card to work with LEAP/CKIP?

Thanks,
Mike
