Changing network password

Hello!

 

I work at a school district and we are needing to change the password to our secure wireless network.  If we change the password now will all of the users who are currently connected to the network lose connectivity?

 

Thank you for your time!

Re: Changing network password

Yes.

I would look at possibly enabling a 802.1x SSID.

Hey Colin,

 

Thanks for the reply.  Could you elaborate a little on that idea?

Re: Changing network password

802.1x will allow users to use actual usernames and passwords to access the network so that you won't have to keep changing the key.

 

How to set it up is here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Video/VIDEO-Configuring-Aruba-Instant-802-1x/ta-p/90320
