Windows Phone 7.5 Connect to WiFi using Certificate

Hi,
I have just got a new LG C900 windows 7 phone, have done the upgrade to 7.5 (Mango).
I am trying to add my phone to sync over the cisco Wifi WAP right next to my office.
The wifi uses (user) certificate  based authentication from my local enterprise certificate authority.
I have emailed myself the correct cert, using a password based wifi point in another part of the office
With the certificate installed it makes no difference, trying to connect to the cert based wifi, it still prompts for password based authentication.
Any ideas.

I also know th hack to get into the 'secret' engineers menu on the phone, but i have not found anything to assist with the above problem.
