Thanks, but I am still having some problems. 

I have the settings as you sent me, set up in the router. I have set
both the radius secret on the radius section of the router setup and the
WPA secret in the security section of the router as the same, namely:

Now, I have this in my clients.conf:
client {
        nastype         = other
        secret          = testing456
        shortname       = dd-wrt

However, when I try to connect using this router, I get the following
from the output of radiusd -X:

Ready to process requests.
rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host, id=0,
Received packet from with invalid Message-Authenticator!
(Shared secret is incorrect.) Dropping packet without response.
Finished request 0

I am sure that I am doing something basic wrong, but I can't see it.
Hopefully, some other eyes will spot the problem. Let me know if you
need any more information.
