Cisco Aironet 1142 and Microsoft IAS

Posted on 2009-12-16

I have a cisco 1142 wireless access point in autonomous mode that I am trying to setup with my IAS server. I currently have IAS working with a ASA and authenticating users against AD but cant seem to get it to work with the wireless AP. Is there a guide to walk me through this? I have found alot of documentation on CIsco's website but it only shows setting up the AP side. Do I need to install a CA to get this to work?

    you don't need a CA - but it's best to do it.

    in addition to configure AP - you also need to configure remote access policies on IAS/Radius server and Wireless Security Profile (GPO) on users og computers OU.
    take a look here:

    Thanks. Never could get it to work without defining a CA. It would give me authentication failure on client without a certificate.

    good work.

     But, depending on how you set up the Wireless GPO settings - CA is optional. But has to be the same on both ends :-)
