Validating identity wifi
Ideally they should then provide their network credentials at connection time and be seamlessly connected.It appears that the Subject Alt Name entry of the certificate must be set to the DNS used to reach the radius server.
Does anyone know of a way to avoid having to do this?I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful! So then I tried to connect from my desktop computer that has a wireless USB adapter attached to it and I ended up getting this error message: Fabulous! I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.To resolve this issue, disable 802.1X feature on your Windows computer.Sometimes when the settings of the client device and the router don't exactly match, the client won't see the router's Wi Fi network.This article assumes background knowledge in IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN and associated security technologies and the components of a Windows-based authentication infrastructure.
For background information, see Wireless LAN Technologies and Microsoft Windows.
The Network Connections folder and the notification area icons provide information about the state of the authentication.
If an authentication requires additional information from the user, such as selecting one of multiple user certificates, a text balloon appears instructing the user.
Abstract This article describes the tools used to troubleshoot a Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003-based wireless client, a wireless access point (AP), and the Internet Authentication Service (IAS) when using Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X authentication for IEEE 802.11-based wireless connections.
This article also describes the most common problems with IAS authentication and authorization, certificate properties, and the process of certificate validation for both wireless client and IAS server certificates.
We are perfectly willing to buy a certificate from Verisign, Thwarte, etc if it will help but have tried our Comodo wildcard SSL certificate which hasn't fixed it.
