Wireless authentication and ACS v3.2

Hello there,

I have a question for ACS v3.2 - Does anyone know if ACS has to keep the session between ACS and Windows Database open for wireless users authentications? A little history on the problem: I have a wireless LAN using ACS v3.2 and on ACS I have defined a Windows Database to be used for unknown users (which are the 99% of wireless users) A lot of users are lossing connectivity and are being prompted to re-authenticate every so often. I'm trying to troubleshoot this issue. Thank you very much for your help in advance....


Re: Wireless authentication and ACS v3.2

Questions arise here. But to first answer your question, I do not believe that the link remains open. I think the ACS does an LDAP call to the AD, and once it gets the pass/fail, it closes that session.

What type of client NIC is being used?

Re: Wireless authentication and ACS v3.2

Thanks for the answered. To answer your question, the majority of users are using the Dell Wireless 1470 Mini-PCI Card

Manufacturer: Broadcom

Do you know if there is a known issue with this card?
