I am installing a WLAN. I have configured a RADIUS server for authenticating my clients etc. I am confused about one thing though - in addition to configuring my access point to use this RADUIS server, there is a tab for AP Authentication which appears to be for Dot1x authentication. I am using a Cisco 1240 AP. I am trying to determing what this is for - my research is telling me this is to be used if I am using switch port security, but I want to be sure. Insight is much appreciated.

Its used for port based (not just physical switches) authentication with radius. Its the authorization of clients onto the wireless network.
