falling back to local auth and not ads

Thanks Alan,
I've looked further into the documentation of the pre-build package, and as far as I can tell that entry is required, so that non-EAP requests still get accepted, but the device gets put into the captive-portal.  I will seek further clarification on this through them directly.

Thanks for your help,

this is still with this prebuilt package?  I would say theres all kinds of things wrong with that package and you'd be best off working with just a fresh copy of FreeRADIUS built direct from source.... for one thing, it works straight out of the box once you've added a source of authentication (ie added an entry in users file or configured the ntlm_auth)

ERROR: No authenticate method (Auth-Type)  means that you dont have the required handler present to deal with the request.  it worked before as you had a HUGE bodge in the users file saying that if the request wasnt EAP then just accept...no matter what! :-|

you CANNOT (thankfully!) just blindly accept all EAP - there has to be a 2-way communication of trust and the setting up of crypto keys etc.  to work with EAP and MSCHAP without EAP you will need to ensure the required modules are enabled and configured...so you're looking at eg mschap module and ntlm_auth module.
