RADIUS on Linksys WRV210

Unanswered Question

I'm trying to set up a Linksys WRV210 wi-fi access point to use WPA2 Enterprise authentication.

It all works just fine as long as my RADIUS server is on the same subnet as the LAN ports on the device, and is connected onto one of them.  But I really need the server to be elsewhere.

I tried putting it on the WAN side of the device.  I could sniff and see requests going out to the radius server and challenges coming back; however, nothing happened.  I strongly suspect that the device was firewalling the challenges.  How could I turn this firewalling off?

Conversely, is there a way to connect a router to the LAN side of the WRV210?  I tried to set up static routes to do this, and it just didn't seem to work.

I have this problem too.

Make sure that TCP port 1612

is opened on the firewall for authentication. This is the port used in communication between WLC and Radius Server.  You can also have a router on the LAN side and place the Radius sever behind the router.
