Newbie question

When I run radiusd, it says it is running properly, but I check with netstat -n and I don't see anything listenning on port 1812. The port setting in the configuration file is '0' (which is I think 1812 by default). 

Is this normal? I don't think my ap can access to radius server..

This is not a radius question.

Wireless clients running 802.1x will have some software (known as a 
supplicant) built in, which prompts for the username/password and 
execute the EAP traffic exchange to the AP (which is forwarded to the 
radius server by the AP)

I suggest you do some reading on 802.1x on wireless.
