I was really hoping for some suggestions of the best route to go with the scenario I have below as I don't have much experience with 802.1x setups.
Scenario: I need two tablet PC's to authenticate via an Aironet 1200 series AP to access resources on a Windows Server 2003 DC that's running IAS/RADIUS. Some machines will be hardwired to access resources on the server as well.
Problem: It didn't work :)
Questions: Do I need to setup the DC/IAS/Radius server as an enterprise CA as well?
Does the Aironet 1200 AP have to be directly connected to a secondary NIC on the Radius Server or can it simply be plugged into the switch as long as it is on the same subnet (which it currently is)?
Do the tablet PC's need to be hardwired to the network first and log into the domain so that the computer accounts are created or not?
Since it will only be two machines that need to authenticate wirelessly can I just setup the wireless clients manually.
If anyone has a link to a step by step unlike the 170 page Microsoft whitepaper then that would really help!
