Here's mine:
#### radiusd.conf section
        ldap {
                server = "localhost"
                identity =
                password = neveryoumind
                basedn = "dc=sd57,dc=bc,dc=ca"
                filter = "(mail=%{User-Name})"
                start_tls = no
                dictionary_mapping = ${raddbdir}/ldap.attrmap
                ldap_connections_number = 5
                groupname_attribute = cn
                groupmembership_filter =
                #groupmembership_attribute = WirelessUsers
                timeout = 4
                timelimit = 3
                net_timeout = 1
                # compare_check_items = yes
                # do_xlat = yes
                # access_attr_used_for_allow = yes

#### users file
DEFAULT         Ldap-Group == "NetworkAccessWireless", Auth-Type = LDAP
                Class = %l,
                Reply-Message = "%u",
                Fall-Through = 1
