I am trying to setup a wireless network at my school.

they want me to setup some cisco access points, however they would like user authentication built into the entire thing.

Every user already has an active directory account so I would like something that can authenticate against that.


If possible I would like something like starbucks has, you go to their store, connect to their wireless, however cannot access the internet untill you are logged in and authenticated.

I am looking for something open source, and preferably free if anything exists.

If there is something close I would also be willing to hear about it so long as it only needed minor modifications.


Feel free to ask any questions.

Thanks,
Jim

The Cisco AP's will let you use RADIUS authentication. RADIUS is Microsoft IAS server which comes with all Windows 2000/2003 servers. You just have to install it from add/remove Windows components.
This will let you leverage the existing AD authentication.
