Windows 7 & Wireless

In Win7, the SSID is case-sensitive.   If you create a wireless connection in the wrong case, Windows 7 will ignore it and use default settings to try and connect to the AP.   On Cisco AP’s controlled by ABG’s freeradius this is a real problem.

Cisco VPN Client & Windows Vista 64-Bit

Cisco IPSec Client does not support 64-bit. If the user requires 64-bit support, the upgrade path is to use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client instead, which does support 64-bit. However, the AnyConnect Client supports only SSL VPN connections (CSCsi26069). For Windows Vista, there is no firewall support in the VPN Client. To resolve the Bluescreen issue on Windows XP related to the VPN client built-in firewall, upgrade to VPN Client version 5.0.5.x or higher.
