Hi,

    I've read about using IAS to authenticate wireless users against AD but
I can't find any detailed instructions on actually how to set everything up.
I read about needing a CA and using certificates however is that really
necessary?  I was told that there is a way to create user accounts named
after the MAC address of the wireless card.  Does anyone know how to do this?
Do I have to also distribute certificates to laptops?  I could really use
some help.  A big thanks to anyone that can help me with this.

Riley
