If you mean 802.1x authentication, I don't think you understand how it
works. All 802.1x (link layer) authentication methods use EAP, so all
clients must have SOME kind of supplicant.
Non-802.1x authentication is normally done via some kind of web-based
login. Google for "captive portal" or "walled garden". The auth types
you can use with a captive portal depend on the captive portal. See the
docs for your portal.

I'm afraid this doesn't make sense to me. Can you describe in more
detail what you're trying to do?
