WDS has nothing to do with WPA. WDS is used for the passing of radius to a designated access point, hence stopping the need for all access points authenticating to one radius server. WPA occurs after the user is authenticated. I know this because we're implementing wireless across our entire campus using Cisco 1230's and have already deployed them in 4 buildings. I've successfully setup WDS, with EAP-PEAP with WPA encryption and it works very well.


I also cannot get MAC's running OS 10.3 to connect to our wireless network using WPA. According to our radius logs, the user successfully authenticates via EAP-PEAP but the WPA key process seems to fall over. Are you experiencing the same problems?

    We're having a similar problem, only we're getting the error that the EAP authentication isn't configured for the user. How did you get Authentication to work?

    I an yet another who can't get my Mac with OS 10.3.2 to connect to our Cisco Corp. WLAN. If we change the TKIP setting from "Cisco" to None, it works, but I thought that the Airport should support TKIP.

    I would hope that someone from Apple or Cisco would address this issue. Especially Apple, who could greatly benefit from adding more Macs to corporate environments.

    I know it hasn't been long since the previous post, but has anyone had any success?
