Windows 2008 802.11x Wireless Setup/Configuration

I've recently migrated my wireless network from RADIUS/IAS on Windows 2003 with PKI to Windows 2008 R2. It took me a while to get to the bottom of it so I thought I'd write a How-To to help others out.

Requirements:

# One or more 802.1X-capable 802.11 wireless access points (APs).

# Active Directory with group policy

# One or more Network Policy Server (NPS) servers.

# Active Directory Certificate Services based PKI for Server certificates for NPS computer/s and your wireless PC's

    Use this command to generate a CSR, using the PKCS#10 format.

Preparation

As with all configuration changes, it is best to connect your router with an Ethernet cable so that you do not get disconnected or locked out of your router while configuring it. If you wish to bridge a VLAN or other interface to the virtual wireless interface, then see other guides on how to set up those interfaces, this guide will just tell you how to bridge it.
