Validating identity for wireless

However, if the model or the firmware version does not support Certificate Configuration yet, we may set up the Windows client not to verify the server's identity, and still do 802.1X authentication with Vigor Router or Vigor AP.

However, since version 1.1.7, Vigor AP supports Certificate Configuration which can generate the required certificate itself, and use it for 802.1X authentication.

This can occur if the if the RADIUS certificate, or any certificate in the chain, is configured or CRL or OCSP.

By default, 802.1X authentication on Window 8.1/10 consists of not only client authentication, but also server authentication, which requires the server (here is the Vigor AP) to provide certificate information to the client.

You must ensure server certificate validation is enabled.

By combining the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) with Ethernet, an ISP can use Ethernet topologies and still maintain the individuality of user access as if they were using a dial-up modem.

After initially setting up the Win 7 laptop, in the case of the others I was asked for the security code and the connection was duly established.
