    Configuring your machine for a network IEEE 802.1x Authentication IEEE 802.1x is an IEEE standard for wired and wireless networks that limits access from unauthorized network devices. Your Brother machine (supplicant) sends an authentication request to a RADIUS server (Authentication server) through your access point (authenticator). After your request has been verified by the RADIUS server, your machine can access the network.
