Our AuthenticateMyWiFi™ service is a hosted or cloud-based service that enables you to use the Enterprise mode of Wi-Fi Protected Access—WPA or WP2—security for your Wi-Fi network.
AuthenticateMyWiFi™ provides you with access to a RADIUS server, which is required for the enterprise-level Wi-Fi security. It provides 802.1X (PEAP) authentication for your network. Basically, our service gives you top-notch Wi-Fi security, without you having to invest time and money in setting up your own RADIUS server.
Similar hosting companies just provide the authentication service, however we offer a full feature set:
Works with All Operating Systems and Hardware
All Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ hardware (wireless routers, access points, wireless adapters, etc) that supports WPA or WP2 Enterprise security (with the PEAP protocol) should work with the AuthenticateMyWiFi™ service. However, the Activity Logs are only available when the access point or wireless router supports RADIUS accounting; some consumer-level gear doesn't support it.
Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux are all supported
Our service also works with all mobile platforms that support the Enterprise mode of WPA/WPA2 security, such as: Apple iPad/iPod Touch/iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Nokia Windows Phone, and more.
For more than 200 users, contact us for a custom quote.
Yearly subscriptions are on a year-to-year basis and monthly subscriptions are on a month-to-month basis. (Similar hosting companies offer monthly prices, but require a year contract.) At any time, you can cancel the subscription and you won't be charged again.
A single AuthenticateMyWiFi™ account can be used to support wireless routers and access points across multiple locations throughout the world. They just need to be connected to the Internet in order to work with our service.
You'll find traditional RADIUS servers that can be used for 802.1X authentication. However, we offer a few things Windows Server IAS/NPS and other authentication servers don't:
Setting up the Service
Our step-by-step guide will help you set up your network with our service:
You can change the usernames, passwords, and revoke access when you wish via the AuthenticateMyWiFi™ control panel. Plus for each user you can optionally restrict access by login times (ie Monday - Friday 8am to 6pm), limit access via a particular Wi-Fi computer/device (ie their company issued laptop), or via a certain AP.
