Generally, you can only do this is if the requests from those "certain 
APs" have something which distinguishes them. Then you can match on this 
in the users file [using 'DEFAULT'] and set Auth-Type to Reject.

Something like as documented!:

If you are really still using 1.0.1 (Sept 2004!?), please do upgrade. 
Apart from the technical/security aspects, the current published 
documentation will apply ;)
