You can connect to a wireless network using the WS103 wireless module.
BrightSign players support most commonly used wireless encryption formats: WEP (64 & 128), WPA (TKIP), and WPA2 (AES). WPA Enterprise is supported using EAP-TLS (with DER, PEM, or PKCS#12 certificates) and PEAPv0/MSCHAPv2 (with a username and passphrase). Wired authentication via 802.1x is also supported.
You can view a full list of WS103 specs here.
The wireless settings of a player are configured during the Unit Setup process in BrightAuthor or BSN.
Also, any networked model that doesn't have a wireless module can use a wireless bridge (game adapter) connected to the Ethernet port.
Why do you state that XP players can use WPA2 Enterprise authentication, yet you say it cannot support the type of authentication needed for WPA2 Enterprise (802.1x)?
That's like saying - Yeah, the door lock totally works, but it won't accept a key.
It seems you have mis-interpreted the wording. It says "Wired authentication via 802.1x is not supported". We support 802.1x over WiFi; the purpose of the comment is to indicate that we _only_ support it over WiFi, as some customers have asked for it on Ethernet.
Good morning, Here is my problem, is it possible for my bright sign unit(LS422) to be connected on the network via Dongle or wireless? I want to transfer my data using Brightsign network, so I have already configured my SD CARD. But my question is can the unit be connected to the network without Ethernet cable? please I hope my makes some sense. kind regards
Please can I know the different models of 4G/3G modem and wireless bridge (game adapter) connected to the Ethernet port which are compatible with LS422?
I had a reply to my question and it was very useful.
thanks so much
This mentions that WPA Enterprise is supported using EAP-TLS (with DER, PEM, or PKCS#12 certificates) and PEAPv0/MSCHAPv2 (with a username and passphrase) but I can't find any clear instructions on how or where to enter username and passphrase credentials.
I have the exact issue as Paul Caro notes below and I see that he never got a response. Is there are solution/instructions on how to sign on to enterprise network using username and passphrase?
