Thanks for your advice.
do you know where can I find the 802.1X configure about Server,
Authenticator, and Supplicant using EAP-PEAP-MSCHAPv2?
I had found a page called "8021X-HOWTO",
but it can't work well as I following the steps.
Maybe it's my fault with setting.

Ask another question,
Can user connected by wired Ethernet also authentic by this method for
802.1X authentication?
