Hi

We have recently setup up wireless access for staff and students laptops using PEAP, lightweight access points (cisco) and connecting to a Cisco 4400.

We have found that PEAP seems to be very slow to login and were wondering if there were a better or faster way for us.

Any help or pointers will be appreciated.

Peap security is by far the safest of them all. Are the access points in the same subnet and/or location of the Radius server. with peap authentication the device authenticates directly o the Radius server instead of the AP authenticating the device.

If this causes large delays you can easily switch to LEAP authentication, then the AP's communicate with the Radius server and the AP authenticate the devices immediately. this goes allot faster but is less secure.

here u can find the way to set ip up.
