LDAP authorization - Attribute "User-Password" is required for authentication

I have now read many How-To's but don't seem to be able to find an 
answer, and I hope someone on the list can help.

I am using a Netgear WAG102 Wireless access point to autorise to Radius, 
which in turn uses LDAP. radtest from the command line of the local host 
authenticates no problem, but I understand that it is a possibility that 
the Netgear passes the Mac address of the laptop through to use as a 

I am unable to understand how to map this in LDAP and keep getting :
  Attribute "User-Password" is required for authentication

I am using the radiusProfile for each user in LDAP that I allow access 
via wireless.

I am pretty new to Radius so am I sure I have some config wrong here 
somewhere. I am currently testing on Ubuntu 8.04, and have Freeradius 1.1.7.
