Q & A: AD authentication for wireless access

Postby chicagotech » Fri Dec 08, 2006 1:38 pm

Q: I've got a network for a local high school running Windows Server 2003
with each student having an account on the system. I want to add a
wireless AP to the network to allow wireless internet in the library.
However, I would like students to have to login before they gain access
to the internet and prevent them from accessing anything else, like

Since some kids have Macs and other PCs I would like the whole
authentication process to occur in their web browser, kind of like
Starbucks has. How can I set this up? Do I need a special access
point or will any work? Does Server 2003 have the software to handle
this or is it something additional?

A: It depends on the wireless router/AP, you may be able to setup RADIUS authentication in Windows 2003 IAS.
