If you are using web based login then chillispot hands out its DHCP
leases before it does its radius authentication. (The radius
authentication only happens after the user has entered a username and
password in the login page.)

In order to give out fixed IP addresses you have to set chillispot to do
MAC-Auth which will query the radius server with the MAC address as the
username. This causes it to do a radius request when the device
initially connects. You then must include a 'Framed-IP-Address'
attribute in your radius reply.
