wireless data encryption without pre-shared keys?

Unanswered Question
Sep 8th, 2008

Is there anyway to secure the data transmitted wirelessly without using pre-shared keys for encryption? I'm trying to allow residents to connect to the wireless network without having to go around and put wireless keys on all laptops.

I have this problem too.

You could look into 802.1X with certificates. This still requires a certificate to be downloaded to the client, but there are several automated ways of doing this.

You will need a certificate authority, and a RADIUS server (such as ACS). There's loads of documentation on CCO on how to configure this.
