Wireless 7925G Phones and EAP-FAST and AES

Answered Question

Hi


I was reading  through the Admin Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0(1) for the Cisco 7925G Wireless Phone and discovered that if you select the Authentication Type on the Phone as EAP-FAST then it supports WEP and TKIP. I was wondering if it does not support this mode with AES and if so has anyone run this deployment?



I ask this because I have deployed this and notice that we get numerous Authentication Failures and Errors on the phones and they lock up periodically with a message;


Authentication Failed!

Your user credentials may be incorrect

Profile: Profile 1


When I enter the new original password for the account it still does not authenticate.


As a test I have also run a new SSID with EAP-FAST and TKIP and I get no such problems


Regards


Greg

Using 1.3.4 with WLC firmware 6.0.196.0.  I've enabled WPA2 with AES and works pretty good!

Yes, they support AES.  Try configuring the phone for AKM.  Keep in mind that CCKM with AES is not supported until 1.3.4.
