Re: Router security

Stuart, you may like this configuration example;

I See ZyXel has a SOHO router line that supports both VLAN and imbedded RADIUS server.

See »www.zyxel.com/products_services/ ··· html?t=p

Also see discussion at

»VLAN routing help needed (USG50)

The big problem I have with my RADIUS implementation is that I can't configure smartphones, tablets, printers etc. to connect . They don't seem to have any WPA2 enterprise support.

Do I understand you to mean that the smartphones, etc., do not have WPA2 enterprise support? I think that must be true, as I have not seen that available in smartphones that I allowed. They do support WPA2 (non-enterprise).

That has been my experience. I've not seen the ability to configure 802.1x RADIUS authentication on the devices I've encountered.

OK, that's what I thought. The router I have dealt with in this situation can support VLAN and also WPA2-Enterprise, but all those smartphones don't understand WPA2-Enterprise.

I wonder whether you can use WPA2-Enterprise mixed and it would work with the smartphones? I have not tested this. After some checking, I think this probably would not work, either. I also found some commentary about WPA2-Enterprise and Apple iOS5 having issues with connecting.

Thanks. My router doesn't implement all the features described in that clip but I now have VLAN's up and going

PC's (no wi-fi anymore--all cabled) in one.
Wi-fi stuff in another.
VOIP in another.

I may have to tweak things a little but I think my LAN is more secure
