i mean can i configure switch as a radius server (Silly question I know) and/or aaa for any user who bring the laptop/device or existing users whenever they connect to the network there should be authentivation method username or password to access the network....

Hi,

   If the users you want to authenticate connect directly to the 3750 switches, you could try using 802.1x. With this option

they have to authenticate themselves when they connect to the 3750, if the authentication is not successful the port will not

forward any packets to the rest of the network:
