but they can still do 802.1x wireless authentication.you will have to manually create it and document it for users to setup with their own personal laptop.However, wireless networking is prone to some security issues.Hackers have found wireless networks relatively easy to break into, and even use wireless technology to hack into wired networks.
If any of the details in your wifi profile are incorrect then your authentication will fail and you will not gain wifi access via eduroam.Once I reboot the access point everyone can connect again but as soon as they disconnect the problem happen again. We testing other security settings (WPA-ENT, RADIUS(! Described here are the steps involved in configuring the Dell wireless client under Windows XP to use eduroam, authenticating via PEAP MSCHAPv2.Your home site will be able to tell you whether PEAP MSCHAPv2 is the appropriate authenticiation method that you should use.On the Mac OS here is how you do it.(see screenshot.) On other laptop models, you will have to use their included utility...thanks nappy_d but, I have hundreds of users, over many sites, connecting to the wireless network..We have a WAP4410N wireless ap configured for WPA2-Enterprise. Issue the user the proper certificate and they sign on correctly but once they disconnect and try to reconnect later it get stuck on "Validating Identity". The request never get to RADIUS server (no success/failure log entry, no radius traffic). If you are not able to connect to Wireless Pitt Net using our automated wizard, you can manually configure your computer using the steps in this help sheet. Right click on WLAN Auto Config and select Properties. Set Startup type: to Automatic, click Apply, then click OK. Note: In Control Panel, set View by: to Large Icons. Note: You must have installed the In Common certificates before completing the instructions below. the laptops connecting to the wireless network do not and can not have accounts in AD. It seems that Windows cannot configure certain network cards (eg Atheros) to work with WPA-Enterprise.thanks again Mat The manufacturers DO allow you to configure 802.1x but NOT for wireless logon as I have mentioned.Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks.
