If you would use wireless, then you can't get an IP before the
Authentication took place. BEFORE authentication the Access Point should
not let pass any normal TCP or IP traffic, e.g. no DHCP packets. Only WPA
(EAPOL etc) key exchange should be allowed.
So the Access Point is kind of a firewall that get's switched on/off.
I think that for a wired driver, you can use your system normally (e.g.
ping, dhcp, telnet) --- even before authentication. Therefore I think
that you need kind of a firewall before your machine that get's notified
by either Windows 2000 or the Radius server that you're now authenticated
and allowed to participate.
