I've done this because the default behavior in freeradius of using Nas-Port and 
Nas-IP-Address will not generate a unique hash or rather will generate too 
duplicate hashes.

I've changed one line - the line that creates the hash key. What would you need 
me to provide/do to help find the source of the delay?
