Wifi security for new suite of laptops - Radius or no?
We're looking at setting up a diploma rooms with 30 computers; recent discussions mean i now need to look at setting up laptops with wifi access rather than the hardwired PCs previously discussed.
We dont have a huge amount of wireless onsite - where it exists its used by teaching staff, mainly in mobile classrooms. I'm wondering if its worth the effort to set up a Radius server to authenticate wireless clients given the small number there will be. Would using WPA with a suitably obscure pass phrase be secure enough?
Context: We're a rural school with few immediate neighbours. I'm the network manager and also the sole technical support for the school (~600 pupils) and i don't want to make a rod for my own back by committing to a huge project if its not really necesssary..
