I have a pretty big network. In each of my remote offices I have an Aironet 1200 series AP. I have configured all of them with VLAN’s. In each site I have created a guest network and there is a separate SSID associated with it. When a user connects they are prompted with a WPA key and then they can access the Internet. The problem I have is the number AP’s has grown to over 30 and updating the WPA key is a very manual process. My budget does not allow for an Wireless Access Controller.
Here is my question. When a user connects to my guest wireless network I want them to be prompted for a logon. Can I achieve this with a RADIUS server? Users would connect then get prompted for a User ID and password? I could create a simple guest account and enable and disable it as needed.
Is this possible. Is there a better way?
