Can you distribute a WEP key on 350's

Just wondering if you can distribute WEP keys to AP's without going to each AP.

Re: Can you distribute a WEP key on 350's

I could not find the exact way of doing this with AP350s but I found this white paper which vaguely describes the possiblity of such a thing....

Cisco's LEAP provides WEP key deployment plus additional security features but it requires a RADIUS server.

Another option would be to use WaveLink's Mobile Manager.

Re: Can you distribute a WEP key on 350's

Well the issue is that we can not deploy dynamic WEP because of devices that do not support LEAP or EAP. Is it possible to distribute a static WEP key to all other 350 and or 340's in the network. I know about WaveLink, but that is not an option. Any ideas?

Thanks!

There is no way to distribute it safely without risking the static keys to be captured. At get go, "secured channel" is required to send the keys. Sending them in uncrypted mode is bad.

Distributing the WEP keys over the wireless is a dangerous and against the security..So you have to login in all the AP's and connfigure it manually..Config destribution from on to all AP's will not include WEP keys..
