[unisog] A question regarding pppoe on wireless

How have you balanced the desire not to change the AP configs against the
need to configure PPPoE on all the wireless clients?  

Most modern APs support WPA/WPA2, so there is no cost there, as do most
modern client cards and operating systems do, too.  What's left then is an
EAP-aware RADIUS server.  If you're a Microsoft shop you can take advantage
of their IAS, and if you're using a lot of Cisco you likely have their ACS.

We are looking for somethign simple, that will tie into our exising radius
system, and that wont require us to change the configuration of all of our
access points.

And the cost is relitivly low.
