Wi-Fi - LEAP availability in Windows 8 (RT) on a Surface tablet

This is a total shot in the dark but does anyone know if there is a way to join a Microsoft Surface tablet (Windows RT) to a wireless network running on Cisco infrastruture requiring LEAP.

The Wi-Fi infrastruture is Active Directory integrated and requires an AD username and password to get on the wirless network.  This doesn't work on Windows RT.

Anyone have any ideas on how to add this functionality?

Windows RT is a consumer device and there is no domain join.

Thanks for the response ve3ofa.   Your answer is not to the question that I asked though.  I'm not trying to join my Surface tablet to an Active Directory domain.  That would be a separate question which I already know can not be done.  I'm trying to use Cisco LEAP functionality on a Wi-Fi network that requires WPA Enterprise.

My company has some iPads that can successfully connect to our Wi-Fi network with LEAP but the surface tablet can not.  Does anyone know if you can add LEAP to the wireless card driver functionality?  Does anyone know if Microsoft will be adding that in a later update?

Again, I know this is a total stretch but I'm frequently surprised by the answers I get here.  Thanks in advance.

Thanks ve3ofa.  The more we monkey around with the standard Surface, the more we have to conclude it's a flop for business.  I guess we'll wait for the Pro.
It wasn't meant for business..
