Re: Reboot for password to work

Yes, it haves an additional cost. No pain, no gain ;)

But the authentication server may be set up by an automated script, or part of an installation process. And once installed, it may work with little maintenance. It may also work authenticating 802.1x wired connections, composing a bigger, complete, solution.

Which has the downside of requiring an authentication server, and
someone who knows how to maintain it. PSK works out of the box with the
cheap access point bought from the local electronics store, and can be
administered by a cafe owner with a minimum of technical knowledge...
