  You should really upgrade.  See

  For what you want:

  Step 1 - Get PEAP working
  Step 2 - see "man rlm_passwd"
  Step 3 - create "group" of MAC addresses, using Calling-Station-Id
           rather than User-Name
  Step 4 - See the FAQ for rejecting requests not in a group

  It's a little difficult to help you in more detail when your post says
"It doesn't work!".  See the FAQ about that.
