a lot of the things regarding authorization, authentication,
SQL and LDAP is true for v2 as it is for v1

when you say 'set up a freeradius v2 server' what have you done?
ouyt of the box as a straight install, FR2 is ready to handle
WPA2-enterprise.  all you need to do is install your own certs,
or make the default ones longer lasting and suitable for you (by
editing the server.cnf and client.cnf stuff and rerunning the
bootstrap), then add NAS devices to clients.conf and ensure
that the authentication you want to use is configured correctly.

whatever you do, dont madly hack and edit down the default config files!
