Well I been working on this system in some form or another for about a 
month, which when done is going to be able (so I am told) to limit the 
bandwidth that the connected users (be it wired or wireless clients) can 
use using squid/squish/hostapd/freeradius/daloradius (so when I leave 
someone can have a point and click way to delete abusive users and add 
them back when needed). From my reading I was under the impression that 
to use daloradius I needed to use mysql (I could be wrong on this) 
otherwise I would use the user accounts on the system and be done with 
it. Instead of doing what I should have been doing and using the links 
to the documentation and wiki I went looking for a "QUICK FIX" and it 
didn't work and it burnt me in the a$$. I was smart enough to copy 
original files to a backup directory BEFORE I made any changes, so 
copying the original files back and going to the wiki and starting from 
there is not going to be that difficult.
