I have not used security with my APs as the enviroment has been fairly small and it is a school setting where the "hackers" if there were any would be the students anyways.

Now that we have wireless almost deployed across 4 buildings with about 200 APs. I'm thinking I would like to get started.

I am running the 6.0 software on 2 5508s and a 4402. I will be instituing WCS but that will be awhile off.

I do not want to touch almost 1000 laptops to configure them for security. Am I best to try to just have the users use a name and password everytime, ldap auth., keys, etc. so that the controller knows the laptop is friendly?

Later on I want to do guest access but first things first.

I'm open to suggestions.
