I'm studying for proof infrastructure, and I was in doubt to know what the difference WPA2-EAP authentication and EAP-MSCHAP V2 I could not understand how a RADIUS server can take these two methods of authentication? Is there any relationship these two methods of authentication?

Thanks for your post.
WPA2 requires the determination of a mutual pairwise master key (PMK) based on the EAP or PSK authentication processes. WPA2-EAP means that use Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) authentication method, it's not use a pre-shared key (PSK). EAP-MS-CHAP v2 is a mutual authentication method that supports password-based authentication. EAP-MS-CHAP v2 is only supported with PEAP.
