Securing Wireless WPA in Win2k3

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?UmljTmFneQ==?=, Feb 28, 2005.

  1. Let me start by stating what OS's and hardware I have.

    Currently I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 on 3 clients and Windows 2k3 SP1
    on my DC. I just figured out that you should not use the wireless group
    policy till you fully fully understand it.

    I have MN710's for the clients and a MN700 on the Server acting as an AP. I
    am using WPA since it is the strongest.

    The way it is currently configured I am able to use WPA but that key is
    going to remain the same. I read somewhere about using a Radius Server to
    randomly change that key and distribute it to the clients. How real of a
    possibility is this and how do I go about setting this up. I'm curious how
    the Radius Server will change the key on the Access point.
    Ive read some of the documentation out there but nothing really specific. So
    can I use a radius server with an MN700 and 3 MN 710s and how do I set this
    up between IAS, Radius, the access point, the clients and group policy I
    guess is the question?

    http://www.microsoft.com/wifi is your friend. "Step-by-Step Guide for
    Setting Up Secure Wireless Access in a Test Lab" is one about authentication
    etc. - 802.1x is the same with WPA, whereas keying is changed (no more
    rotating WEP keys)
