I am currently implementing 802.1x with IAS/Windows Radius server. I have been able to make it work, but had a concern with the amount of time it takes to authenticate. Has anyone else had any experience with this? I am using WPA Radius with AES, and have tried TKIP also. It takes around 20-40 seconds to validate identity when booting up. If I look at the log on IAS server, it shows user validated twice, around 20-40 seconds apart. Is the Linksys not receiving the first packet and waits for second? If I change encryption to WEP radius, it really goes fast, just a few seconds. What is different about WEP, is WPA just naturally slower with 802.1x? I have updated to latest firmware revision.
