7921 using wpa2 with EAP Fast

Answered Question
Aug 28th, 2007

I have some 7921 phones. I am trying to connect them using a 4404 wlc on firmware 4.1.181.0

I can connect using wep, but it wont authenticate using wpa2. I have tested the ssid with my laptop and it works, but with the phone it isnt even hitting the radius server.

Any suggestions?

I have this problem too.

Will want to use version 1.03.

Also for WPA2, will need to set the phone to either EAP-FAST or AKM mode. AKM mode will use LEAP for 802.1x. EAP-TLS and PEAP are not supported currently on the Cisco 7921G.

If using EAP-FAST, may want to increase the 802.1x timeout on the controller. See http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_ipphon/english/wip7921/relnote/rn7921_3.htm#wp161964.
