My wifi router is Olitec wf402sg (aka NAS (Network Access Server) : do not 
hesitate to correct me if I'm wrong).

To resume my assumptions are :

- FreeRadius contains few servers : authorize, accounting (and others ?).
- the wifi router is the only client of the radius server (at least in a 
personal or home config like the one I'm referring to).
- so only the wifi router access authorization port 1812 and accouting port 
- if my wifi router is not able to be configured for accounting my network is 
not able to do accounting because station(s) cannot contact 1813.

I'm correct ? 
Please do not hesitate to correct me / argument / suggest.
