Wireless client for Windows 7 x64

Hi,

I'm looking for Wireless client for Windows 7 x64 that can support the following encryption type suitable for HP Notebook ProBook 4230s

WP2-Ent
Server Certificate validation

I tried IntelPROSet (not suitable) and HP Wireless (default wireless manager), but none of them authenticate with WPA2-Ent with certification validation. You have to manually configure the user's wireless client profile.

Thanks a lot.

The Windows built-in client does this.  Just make sure you have the option checked.

Disable the third party software and use only the Windows software.

the problem with windows 7, without local administrator rights, you cannot auto configure the Wireless client and change the Security type from 802.1x to WPA2-Enterprise,

I have 300 users using notebooks and I cannot go to every single notebook and configure their wireless client profile.

My customer preferred not to use GPO to configured the wireless client profile because they want to simulate a notebook connecting as guest.

Thanks

I don't understand.  WPA2-Enterprise uses 802.1x.  Using Group Policy would be perfect here.  The way I see it, I don't see how you can expect to autoconfigure clients if they're guests.  If they're not guests then you already have the means you need.  Personally I haven't seen any solution that treats guests in the same way that managed clients are treated, and that's simply because with guests you don't have control over them.  For guest access you may want to investigate Aruba ClearPass (disclaimer - I've used Aruba controllers and have read about ClearPass, but have no personal experience with it).
