Cisco - Dynamic VLAN Assignment


Is there a way to configure Dynamic VLAN Assignment without using a proprietary wireless client on the end-user computer? If so, how?

For example, I would like to use the wireless client built-in to Windows, Macintosh, and/or Linux.

Please confirm: you're saying that the client-side config detailed in the link that I provided is redundant and that all that is required for the client to understand which vlan it should be on is standard vlan tagging at the switch/ap?
No, you don't need a proprietary wireless client. 802.1x is an industry standard protocol. Windows and newer version of OS X have built-in 802.1x supplicants. As for Linux I am sure it has a built in supplicant also, but there is an open source supplicant call XSupplicant that is available if not.
