I have never set up authentication on my radios, and am now looking into a couple methods. I have a school with 4 radios that I would like to authenticate users to, but need management to be centralized. I was looking into freeradius, but had another wireless tech advise I go with using the hotspot feature. Is it possible to do this on one box that would act as a gateway for all the radios? I need management to be fairly easy, since I am sure the person who will work with this will not be very techie.
I am running Routerboard 532s indoors, using cm9s ad OS v3.0rc13
