Ok I will have a go and submit my results back to the users/devel  
lists depending upon how I get along.

The final destination is a single wifi router such as asus 500p which  
has a usb port that can take stick for local storage to host db with  
captive portal and wpa for either PEAP or tls logon ssids with web  
admin backend. All with openwrt.

Will let you know how I get along with the freeradius component.
