Yet another Ruckus->Smoothwall thread!
I am in the process of replacing my existing Trapeze wireless network with a new Ruckus one. I currently have the following WLANS -
haz-x - 802.1x authentication against our RADIUS server for domain users and devices such as laptops
haz-m - MAC address authentication mainly for school owned mobile devices that need to access certain network resources. At the moment this is mainly iPads connecting to the Groupcall Emerge service that lives on the SIMS server
haz-guest - self explanatory really but devices on here get an IP address from a Cisco Pix firewall which itself sits on a seperate VLAN. Transparent proxy doesnt really work with this so clients have to be manually configured with the proxy
I'd like to replicate the functionality of the above and to that end I have got the 802.1x working. However I know MAC address authentication isnt that secure so I'm looking at the best way of allowing those devices that need access to Emerge etc but without compronmising security.
I'd also like to set up a BYoD for students that uses their AD credentials to authenticate (for example) but keeps them away from the rest of the network.
We have a Smoothwall UTM1000 and Extreme Black Diamond as a core switch
I'm sure there are several ways of skinning this particular cat and I wondered what preferred solution for you guys would be.

Have a look at this guide i created. Might we what you are looking for, though the switch i used was the HP 4204 switch.

Have a look at this too. It will highlight some very good features of ruckus Ruckus Wireless : Demos on Demand for IT.
Lets just say that i had a phone call from someone trying to sell me another vendor, i felt the warm feeling of smugness when i told them i had a ruckus system along with smoothwall. I said the ruckus kit is very good stuff to which they said, yes it is :O. i couldn't believe it! A very warm feeling indeed.
