    setting up Radius with cisco WAP4410N

    Hi gang I've just bought 4 Cisco WAP4410N access points for the school.

    the current setup

    Server: Windows server 2008 DC with Network Policy Server Role added

    Client: Windows xp SP3 (laptop)

    What I've done

    On the server I have setup a 'New RADIUS Client' which is enabled.

    Friendly name: CISCO-WAP01
    IP Address: 10.64.65.26
    Vendor name: Cisco
    Manual shared secret: (12 character password with numbers letters symbols)

    Cisco AP setup

    wireless > security >

    SSID: student-secure
    Wireless Isolationbetween SSID): Disabled
    Security mode: Disabled
    Primary RADIUS server: 10.64.64.8
    Primary RADIUS Server Port: 1812
    Primary Shared Secret: (SAME AS WHAT WAS CONFIGURED ON THE SERVER 2008 NAP)

    OK so I restart the laptop but and I try to login. "Domain not available"

    I login locally to see if it has logged on to the network and it shows a padlock netxt to the AP in the wireless list.

    The laptops used to be manually configured by typing in a key etc but I really want to move away from this.

    I hope this makes sense

    Can anyone help me out? Cheers

    Kev

    I have only ever setup Cisco APs with Windows Radius on Server 2003.. but ill try and give you a few pointers.

    I set it up using Protected EAP with IAS using a self signed certificate that you can install on clients manually or by gpo - google Microsoft PEAP with passwords for an integration guide, be aware its for 2003 though, but the pricinciples still all apply..

    You will need to use EAP on your SSID setup screen in the Cisco web gui and select the previously configured Radius server to authenicate for EAP just below that (this is from memory cant you tell)

    On your NPS server you need to create a connection policy aswell as specifiy your radius client (you may have done this but you didn't mention it) for your AP(s) and select the appropirate authentication method (EAP/MsCHAPv2) to match your wireless setup - There are various ways to do this to be honest Im just saying how I set ours up

    I just realised you are using a Small Business / Linksys AP rather than Cisco Aironet / IOS type. I was referring to the later in my post above thats all I have ever worked with; so what I was saying about the SSID screen and auth type doesn't quite apply
