The first order of business would be to freeradius in debug mode, or launch an eapol_test client against it, and look to see whether the attribute is being sent.  If you do not know whether the attribute is being sent, you cannot determine whether it is the AP or the freeradius server that needs fixing.

Subject: Using FreeRadius to override VLAN Assignment

I have put the following into my users files

DEFAULT  Auth-Type = "ntlm_auth"
                Tunnel-Type = "VLAN",
                Tunnel-Medium-Type = "IEEE-802",
                Tunnel-Private-Group-id = "1001"

I have told my access point to Allow RADIUS Override on the VLAN Assignment however the VLAN is not getting overridden.  Does the Above entry into my users file not actually send back a vlan assignment and if not is there somewhere else this is supposed to be done?
