The options available for the Security Settings with Intel® PROset/Wireless Software are a little different than the ones from Windows*. In PROset you use the Authentication Type and Authentication Protocol settings to enter user/computer credentials, certificates, etc.
You can find more information about these Protocols in the following document:
Computer credentials ?
Screenshot me.. where ?
All I see on my side, with my PROSet software app is 'PEAP User'...
And your link goes nowhere.. the external link is 802.1x Overview and EAP Types
Edited by moderator with the correct link to the document.
Sorry for the incorrect link, I edited the hyperlink to the 802.1x reference document.
Please let us know the adapter model, Operating System an driver version you are using.
We will check further on your question and will provide additional information soon.
Adapter (irrelevant mind you, but i'll quote it): Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
OS: Windows 10
Driver Version: of the adapter or PROSet version ? I think you want more the PROSet version, no ? I can choose the differing MACHINE versus USER options on Windows client, but the way the PROSet client is rendered, it makes choosing machine versus user difficult to interpret, if able to be selected at all.
Anyhow, Driver Version of adapter: 126.96.36.199, PROSet version: 188.8.131.52
We have engaged additional resources for this inquiry and it is under investigation. Please allow some time so we can obtain more information about it.
We would like to provide you with the following information about your inquiry:
There is no direct equivalent in PROSet to the Windows* options for configuring the OS Computer / User / Computer or User authentication. The type of authentication used is determined by the type of profile created.
Here is some additional information about the two types of profile you can create with the PROSet admin tool:
1. For Pre-Logon/Common (PLC) only
PLC profiles are applied during, or after the user logs on.
2. For both Pre-Logon/Common and Persistent
Persistent profiles are applied at boot time, or whenever no user is logged on the computer.
- A PLC only profile will use "User authentication".
- A PLC and Persistent profile will use "Computer or user authentication"
During, or before the user logs in, "User authentication" will be used.
After user logs off or reboot, "Computer authentication" will be used.
Please let us know in case you have any further questions.
Amazing that one has to eventuate the entire separate package of the 'Admin Tool' in order to eventuate EAP auth of the client/supplicant to pivot across USER or COMPUTER auth.
Something that the native wireless software client does natively...
Something Intel should really work on. Lacking in terms of Enterprise functionality.
But thanks for the reply.
