Any success getting the WRT54G to authenticate RADIUS?

  1. Hey all,

    I love my WRT, but I'm having an issue that really prevents me from doing what I want with it.

    I've got a WRT54G 3.1 flashed to DD-WRT v23 (Nov. 23 build). I've also got a Windows 2000 Advanced Server with IAS installed, serving up RADIUS authentication using my Active Directory domain controller. I had a D-Link which authenticated against it fine (but did little else right, hence why I have the WRT now). The WRT, however, doesn't successfully authenticate with it regardless of what firmware is loaded. I tried two revisions of the official Linksys firmware before I moved on to DD-WRT, with no success anywhere. I can put in my credentials, and nothing will happen; I won't see any sign of success in the log or anything, and eventually the client will return to the login screen or autoconfigure a 169.254.*.* address. If I put incorrect credentials, or change the shared secret on one end or the other, I can get an error message generated in the log when I try to authenticate, indicating there is some communication. And again, the D-Link authenticates against this exact configuration perfectly.

    Is there some trick to getting this all to work? Or is this something I'll have to live without?
