WAP54G doesn't support WPA-RADIUS

    According to Linksys Techsupport, none of their APs support WPA-RADIUS authentication, even though their User Guide said so. Here is my question. Does anyone know if I can get hold of a 3rd party firmware to support WPA-RADIUS? TIA.

    DD-WRT has WPA-Radius auth.

    What is DD-WRT?

    DD-WRT is a third party firmware based on Sveasoft Achemy. What Linksys Techsupport is telling you is none of the firmware for their APs have a Radius Server built into it. You have to have an Radius Server on your network for their APs to support WPA-Radius. The Radius server listens to a specified port and authenicates a wireless client that has the shared secret. The WAP54G only supports WPA-Radius in that sense. At the Tiny-PEAP forum on this site you can get firmware for the WRT54G series of routers that has a built-in Radius server, it is based on Linksys firmware, but I do not know what firmware version it is built on.

    We have a RADIUS server

    Thanks. We do have the Microsoft IAS Service (RADIUS) which is what I'm trying to do. I have tried using a Dlink DWL2100AP and a 3Com AP and both worked flawlessly with our RADIUS server but not the Linksys one. The techsupport indicated they don't support WPA-RADIUS authentication but just WPA-PSK. This is not good enough security for our company use.
    We don't use the WRT router so the tiny peap firmware don't apply to us. Thks for your input anyways.
