"A: Few home users may be familiar with WPA-Enterprise—the
corporate variation on WPA security. In an Enterprise
configuration, passkey authentication is not performed by the
router, but is handed off to an external machine running a RADIUS
server. In a situation like Dennis's, this is done so that the
authentication is tied into the organization's Windows domain
"Some wireless clients do not support WPA-Enterprise mode, the
Linksys WVC200 IP camera being one such example. Not to be
flippant, but the easiest solution is probably to buy a new
camera—one with WPA-Enterprise support.
"But if we want to get all MacGyver about it, one idea does
spring to mind. A router running DD-WRT or Tomato could be
configured as a wireless bridge to the company's network. In this
setup, the bridge router would authenticate via WPA-Enterprise. Any
devices wired to the bridge router—say, this
camera—should then be online. Of course, if you don't already
have a router lying around that supports DD-WRT or Tomato, buying
one simply to bootstrap this old camera may be seen as a stretch
over in Accounting."
