When you say the staff laptops run on the guest lan do you mean they connect to the guest wireless?
The certificates can be installed just by clicking on them but it needs to be valid for the client you are validating in the case of smart card or cert.
Would be interesting to see a vanilla Windows client with standard settings on the guest and test the different sites. One way around a forced proxy issue is to use a proxy.pac autoconfig file in the guest lan and force them to use a LA upstream proxy if one is available then open the standard 80, 443 DNS and Proxy ports on the wireless firewall :)
I have Ruckus manged system.
Netbooks use a certificate dished out via GPO, staff just log onto the guest one as i stopped adding them to the domain cus it was a faff!
As you can tell this sort of stuff isnt my forte! lol
Sorry to ask what is potentially a silly question, but what is MDM? I know it's Mobile Device Management, but are you referring to a particular product?

@Net-Ctrl Support kindly set our Ruckus up with a separate account specific to the i-Pads.

I don't really know how far the pricing comes down when you start talking large quantities for edu, but it's not exactly a cheap option to go down the enterprise MDM route.

I got quoted about £1.50 per device per month so it is not cheap and at the moment I'm trying to get my hands on a mac mini purely to do the MDM stuff.
I don't think it can sync books, music and podcasts but I may be wrong.
