Hey everyone,

I have inherited a unsecured wireless network with the following setup -

1x WLSE express (v2.13.1)

28x AP 1210

10x AP 1130

Windows 2003 Active Directory

I was wondering what would be the best security / encryption solution to implement without spending a dime. I have reading alot about PEAP as well.

Any suggestions / advice would be appreciated.

PEAP does not specify an authentication method, but provides additional security for other EAP authentication protocols, such as EAP-MSCHAPv2, that can operate through the TLS encrypted channel provided by PEAP. The PEAP authentication process consists of two main phases:

Thanks for the reply.

We dont have WLC but can WLSE express used instead? If so, is there any recommended articles you know of?

Thanks again.
