I'm assuming you mean that if someone has radiusgroupname=WLANStudents,
then you want to assign them to that VLAN.  Is that correct?

If so, you need to find out what radius attributes you need to send back
to the access point to assign them to that VLAN.  Then you can use the
users file to set that up.

For example.

DEFAULT  Ldap-Group == WLANstudents
	SomeAttribute = SomeValue

DEFAULT  Ldap-Group == WLANdata
	SomeAttribute = OtherValue

Make sense?

The SomeAttribute is some radius attribute that your NAS expects back that
will assign them to a VLAN.  The SomeValue and OtherValue are the values
you would return that would specify which VLAN they should be in.  You'll
have to check the documentation of your AccessPoint to figure out what
that attribute/value pair should be.
