I am off to university in September, and was planning on getting and using a Time Capsule to make my printer wireless, and for wireless backups. Also- the internet connection in the halls is wired through an ethernet cable- so I was planning on plugging the cable into the TC and having wireless internet. I decided to email the uni to check if this would be allowed- and he brought up some interesting points. Below is part of the email "Our halls network uses 802.1x authentication for all devices connected to it. In addition to this, the MAC address of each device you wish to connect must also be registered with us. Although 802.1x is listed as an authentication method on the product description page of the time capsule it looks to me like it is only supporting it for its own authentication. This would mean that it does not support 802.1x to authenticate itself against another network. The Time Capsule will need to support 802.1x authentication on the ethernet WAN to be able to connect to our network before it can access the internet. I have never come accross a home router that can do this before. If the Time Capsule does support this then it may work. Also, the time capsule will need to behave like a router and not like a hub or a switch. This is because each device that connects directly to our network needs to authenticate itself using 802.1x and only one authenticated device is supported at a time." Could someone please let me know if the TC would work as a router- as I dont want to buy it to find out if it will work. Thanks for any responses!
