LEAP authentication on WCS ap's

I have old handheld devices that are using LEAP authentication to a local radius server. They are currently connected to IOS based access points. I am trying to convert the site to controllers /lwapp, but I cannot

get LEAP to work through the controller. (All other clients/devices are working fine).

Here are the settings for my ssid/radio that the clients use for LEAP on the IOS based ap's:

ssid xxxxxx

authentication open eap eap_methods

authentication network-eap eap_methods

int ...radio0

encryption mode ciphers tkip wep128

broadcast-key change 900


I've tried every option under the controller - wlans -> security -> layer 2, but the handhelds still don't get an IP address or connect correctly. Any ideas? Or is LEAP just not compatable with WCS?

Re: LEAP authentication on WCS ap's

Have you configured the WLC(s) as NAS on the radius server?

What kind of RADIUS server are you using?

Anything in the logs on it when it fails?

I'm currently having some problems with LEAP and Intel 2200BG wifi cards. Maybe your problem only comes from your wireless NIC.
