    Angry Wireless Connectivity Issue

    Hi All
    been new to forum I am hoping I am posting this on correct place if not forgive me.
    I am qualified IT Technician & Got network manager job in school as had lot experience closely working with network manager at past job. So I am developing myself even more here.

    Ok come to point. School has Wireless + Server 2003
    I am making new reservation on DHCP with MAC address of iPhone or PC or any other wireless device
    I am assuming device should connect to wireless itself, and not ask me Security KEY for wireless
    I am sure itís doable, had it in past job where I am goingwrong? Itís not working with my phone
    Any input will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Unless your wireless has been configured as open (bad idea), you will be required to provide a security key. You can restrict wi-fi by MAC address of devices, but that can easily be spoofed, so it's definitely not recommended.

    I'm sure you know, but this security will usually be set up on the wireless access point, unless you have managed wireless or you're using a RADIUS server set up.

    Hope this helps.

    I'd probably put it in the wireless forum - maybe a MOD could move if you agree...
