Section 2: Wireless infrastructure components This section describes the wireless-related components that are typically found in Windows Server 2003 domain networks.It also describes the main wireless components for SOHO wireless networks.Because there are so many EAP authentication methods and types, it is not practical to provide information for every EAP deployment.The goal of our survey is to present a comprehensive review of the recent literature since the publication of [I. We review the major development in these three categories and outline new challenges.This document is designed to assist network administrators, help desk personnel, and developers who work with IEEE 802.11 wireless services and Windows Vista®.These sensors are equipped with wireless interfaces with which they can communicate with one another to form a network. Following a top-down approach, we give an overview of several new applications and then review the literature on various aspects of WSNs.The design of a WSN depends significantly on the application, and it must consider factors such as the environment, the application’s design objectives, cost, hardware, and system constraints. We classify the problems into three different categories: (1) internal platform and underlying operating system, (2) communication protocol stack, and (3) network services, provisioning, and deployment.
Section 3: The authentication process This section provides an overview of the main phases involved in establishing 802.1X authenticated 802.11 wireless connections.
It is crucial to understand these concepts when troubleshooting connectivity problems and performing root-cause analysis in an 802.1X-authenticating wireless environment.
This document describes how to troubleshoot connectivity problems for wireless clients running Windows Vista that are attempting to make 802.1X authenticated connections to Microsoft® Windows Server® 2003 domain networks.
This document also provides some troubleshooting information for wireless clients running Windows Vista® that are attempting to make wireless connections to small office or home office (SOHO) networks.
There is also information for developers and Microsoft support personnel about how to generate and use advanced tracing reports for debugging.
SOHO wireless networks For SOHO wireless networks, this document focuses on a typical network deployment that uses: This document is divided into several sections: Section 1: Troubleshooting client connectivity This section provides a summary of the troubleshooting approach used in this document.
