    i dont...but i was trying to implement the exact same thing just this past
    week. i couldn't for the life of me get it to work using a cisco wireless
    pc card in my laptop. i tried configuring an EAP server to point to our
    domain controller (which had radius installed on it) and even tried these
    instructions for configuring the radius server:;en-us;318710
    nothing freaking worked...
    i couldn't tell if my problem was:
    1. the aironet
    2. wireless pc card config
    3. ms radius (IAS)
    if you get it, or anyone else gets that working, definitely please post your

    for the time being i gave up..i could see my wireless trying to authenticate
    against IAS (viewable in the event viewer on the windows box) but it was
    saying bad username/password....i trying manually entering my username
    password using cisco's desktop utility for the pc card and i tried just
    checking use windows username/password or whatever..nothing worked...
    i have given up and resigned myself to failure.
    i implemented wep,wap, and mac authentication i tried to use
    as much other security as i could....

    I have got this working many times using the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller. The process is relativelty simple. I have never tried it on a 1200 series but i would imagine the process is quite similar.


    There is some good information on what groups and aaa messages to send from the radius to the cisco.

    Are you using windows radius? If so i can send you a screenshot of how i configured dynamic vlans on it for the wlc.
