We are currently implementing a WLAN that uses a Cisco ACS server and Peap MSCHAP V2 authentication, The problem we are having is that as long as the students know their domain name and how to set up the Certificate on the SSID they can bring in their own personal Notebooks and PDAs and get a network connection.  I need to know if there is a way to allow only our computers onto the wireless network.  THanks

    You can enable mac address filtering and add only the machines you want to join your wireless network.

    Can you implement MAC address filtering on your access points?

    I figured it out using the ACS Machine Access Restriction,  We were hoping we wouldn't have to do Mac Filtering.  Thanks
