OK, here's what we'll do get our WPA Authentication working: directory. You'll need to create some files and know some parameters before proceeding to configure Free RADIUS.
The TLS element of Free RADIUS's EAP module (the bit that does the real authentication, EAP itself is just a wrapper) requires two files with random data: directory do this for you.
You won't need a monster to run Free RADIUS: my machine dates from 1998 and uses an 233 MHz AMD K6 CPU with 64 Mb EDO RAM and a 3.2 Gb HDD.
It's no speed demon, but it manages to provide RADIUS, Samba, DNS, DHCP, IP routing/firewalling and printing services to a small bevy (of order 10) clients; you may need to scale specification in accordance with load.

This document is intended as a practical document with a view to getting WPA authentication up-and-running as quickly and as easily as possible.
We therefore gloss over most of the theory behind 802.1x, WPA, cryptosystems, digital signatures and certificates, etc.
This uses a password (which can be up to 63 characters in length) to shared between access point and client (a "shared secret") to authenticate, and act as the starting point for the cryptographic process.In addition, you will need a shared secret known only to the RADIUS server and the AP allowing the latter to identify itself to the former.This can be up to 31 characters long and anything you like, but obviously the longer and crazier the better.WPA with 802.1x and EAP authentication ("WPA Enterprise") is the second form, and it's what we'll be setting up in this document.The Extensible Authentication Protocol is a provision of 802.1x that allows a variety of means of authenticating clients, and in our case we will be using TLS.
