Issues with Radius ond GPO on Server 2008 R2 to lock down out Wi-Fi

I have a network that has SBS 2003 as the Domain Controller.  In addition, I have Server 2008 R2 that is part of the SBS domain.  I have configured Radius on the Server 2008 R2 using WPA2-Enterprise and using a Cisco WAP2000 as my Radius Client.

The config works if I manually configure the wireless connection. I get propted for AD credentials, I enter them and it works.  Here are the issues:
 
1.) I am constrained by SBS 2003 in creating my Wireless GPO Policy because WPA2-Enterprise is not option in the dropdown.  Is there a way around this ??

2.) How can I handle guests that come into the office that need to get on WI-FI ?  I wanted to just create a Guest type account for them to authenticate to get on the wirelees, since a guest laptop is not a laptop on the domain, the GPO doesnt work--is there anyway around that ?

Thanks,

John M. Olsen

We are running on a 2003/2003 domain and functional level but not SBS. I just checked our wireless group policy options and we have the option to use WPA2 available.

One thing you might want to try is adding the GPMC to a 2008 server and creating the group policy from there.

As far as the guest accounts you may need to set up a guest network for them and just provide the username/password. Im not sure if your wireless controller can do multiple networks but that is how we have ours configured.

Hello,

SBS 2003 does not offer WAP2, much less WAP2-Enterprise.

Any other suggestions ?
