No the controller doesn't have an onboard Radius server. Depending on how many MAC addresses you need to authenticate you can use the allow/deny MAC address list feature; the list is limited to 768 MAC addresses globally. If you need more than that you will need to use an external RADIUS server or NAC.

Hello Uber,

The V2110 does not have radius functionality and cannot be used to do MAC authentication. The wireless controller will allow you to configure Guest Access with guest user names and passwords configured, and this is allows authentication through Captive Portal.

Thanks Will, I cannot found the Mac Address list Feature, without a Radius server integration.

The MAC whitelist/blacklist feature can be found under AP -> Mobile Stations -> White/Blacklist tab. It's a ACL for allow/deny MAC addresses in the list. Don't forget MAC addresses are easyly spoofable.

The user guide for the controller/firmware includes a section how to setup the captive portal (for example page 7-43 in 9.01 user guide).

Here is a video of Doug, explaining the captive portal configuration:
