  Solving the problem means buying a NAS which works.  Linksys ones are
usually NOT good enough for what you want to do.

  I have no idea what that means.

  If the NAS isn't doing accounting correctly, blame the NAS.

  This is *ALWAYS* the problem with RADIUS.  The NAS is in control of
*everything*.  If something is going wrong, then BLAME THE NAS.

  No amount of poking FreeRADIUS or posting on this list will result in
your NAS magically working.

  It's impossible.  WiFi 802.1X doesn't work that way.
