I've finally installed the drivers for my wireless adapter, however, I can't seem to find anything explaining out to connect to a WPA2-Enterprise connection. I've found many WPA/WEP/WPA2 explanations, however, these don't solve my situations.

Is there any way to do this? I'm currently CLI only, thanks!

wpa_supplicant is the answer. It supports WPA-Enterprise and several EAP methods. I connect to my home network by executing:

wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -B -c /path/to/wpa_supplicant.conf

Here is an example of configuration file. It's all about configuring this file to match your connection.
