In order for us to make it work, I had to setup a RADIUS (FreeRadius)
server which uses FreeIPA as its backend.   Our WiFi access point is
configured to point to the RADIUS server.   I had to make sure the AD trust
package was installed on the FreeIPA server in order for the proper
security features to work.   We do not have SSL certs on our machine.
