Please post this output, even if it's just the server
startup info.

So, the AP is configured with the RADIUS server's IP,
you have configured your FR "clients.conf" file with
the APs information and the shared secret is correct
on both devices?

Does your AP have any ping functionality?  If so, can
it ping the RADIUS server? Does the AP provide any
logging data indicating it connected to the RADIUS
server?  Sounds suspiciously as if the RADIUS box's
firewall settings may be at fault.
