But I can't access to internet when i use blackberry for connecting to this ssid
I checked on the blackberry and I found that get ip address from DHCP Server already

Re: blackberry with 802.1x authentication

The difficulty with blackberry is that the CA certificate already has to be on the blackberry device before you connect: http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/16648/EAP_auth_methods_that_Wi-Fi_BB_supports_845482_11.jsp

"To configure PEAP authentication, you must install a root certificate on the BlackBerry device that corresponds to the authentication server certificate."

Most other devices will allow you to connect without this restriction.
