yes. we use Cisco APs - we used to use them in autonomous mode but moved to the 
lightweight LWAPP (now CAPWAP) mode a few years back.

I would not recommend broken captive portals. 802.1X is the way forward
(and is now beign mandated by several government and education procurement
systems around the world - expect any half-decent auditor to pick up on this too.
for EAP, you can use EAP-PEAP or EAP-TTLS - in which your RADIUS server
has a certificate signed by a CA. the clients dont need certificates, they
just need to have the CA on them that signed the RADIUS server (for trust!)
