Hi Experts

We have two subnets as follows:

admin.myschool.local ( - SBS Server
training.mysschool.local ( - Windows 2003 Std Server R2

Now, the Windows 2003 Server acts as a Radius Server for Wifi.(IAS)
On the AD of the SBS Server, I have a Group called teachers.  I want to enable this group ot use wifi.
Can you help me to set this up?

Many Thanks in advance

You can use a GPO for this.

Below you'll find a tutorial for this. But before you do this, you need to do some other stuff first.

1. Place the teachers in a different OU. This is to only enable the gpo you're making to this OU.
2. Create a new GPO, like you always do.

Then follow this tutorial.

While you call out two subnets, you also have give your two subnets distinctly different private domain names, which bears the question: is your second server joined into the SBS domain?

Dear cgaliher
Sorry! That domain should read "training.myschool.com".  This  domain was long established before the other one.  The other domain contains private info on students etc so is therefore secured/

Unfortunately you will not be able to accomplish what you want then. SInce these are two different AD domains, you would need to have a federated trust for the IAS server to authenticate users located on the other domain. SBS does not allow federated trusts. Thus, you will not be able to do user authentication via RADIUS.
