Wireless connection always says validating identity

From a security standpoint the best option is setup a captive portal.

Students can use their BYOD devices to connect and reach the portal, pass their user authentication credentials to the portal and the portal can then talk to the RADIUS server.

When Windows XP or 7 clients connect they initally fail to connect.

In order to enable the client to connect we have to add the network manually and un-check the "Validate server certificate" as shown in the screenshot below.

To avoid all this trouble, in the next iteration (i.e.

Eduroam is another popular choice for educational organizations.

I know this post is really old, however, this is similar to my issue except that last week, any client could connect to my wireless network and this week they can not. The windows/android/iphone clients were able to connect with 802.1x verifying against a local, Aruba based database of one user name.

I then verified that the only way for a windows computer to connect to this is to uncheck the "verify the server's identity by validating the certificate" option while manually adding the profile. I just deployed a setup very similar to this last week, to provide Internet access to a week-long campground event.

This is the approach I used and some lessons learned: First, I used multiple SSIDs to provide the primary network on WPA2-Enterprise, and an open network for user enrollment.
