How to generate WEP key automatically for client?


I just set up PEAP for my client with WEP encryption with EAP. Then the client ask me to eliminate any key before prompting user's credential.

I tried to remove encryption but the EAP itself won't work with encryption disabled. Then my client look into windows wirelesss NIC setting and found that below "network key" there's a option for "The key is provided for me automatically"

For that reason, Access Point should be able to generate WEP key without user entering it. Does any body knows how to enable this feature?

How are you performing your PEAP authentication? That would help us answer your question.

To support dynamic wep you will need to setup a RADIUS server for authentication. You would then configure PEAP or EAP-TLS for athentication. IAS (Server 2000, 2003) or NPS (Server 2008) is free, but if you are going to dynamic WEP why not go with WPA.
